Polyphenolic compounds are usually referred to as a group of naturally occurring compounds containing multiple phenolic functionalities. Such compounds are commonly found in the plant kingdom, where they are responsible for flower coloration. Naturally occurring polyphenols are known to present numerous biological activities, e.g., they can be potential candidates for use as drugs, in diseases such as AIDS, heart ailments, ulcer formation, bacterial infection, mutagenesis, and neural disorders.
Several separation techniques can be adopted for their analysis, such as capillary electrophoresis, gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, and supercritical fluid chromatography. Notably, reversed-phase liquid chromatography is considered the “niche technique” for their determination.
The Special Issue aims to collect papers dealing with the analysis of bioactive polyphenolic compounds in food and natural products; in addition, a particular focus on new achievements in the field will be appreciated.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
