Herbal medicines have been commonly used over the years for the treatment and prevention of chronic and acute diseases, and health promotion. Herbal medicines contain multiple compounds which, either individually or together, are responsible for the biological effects of these natural products. Although many plant-derived natural products have already been isolated and characterized, the molecular mechanisms underlying their therapeutic effects remain unexplored. This Special Issue aims to comprehensively highlight the newest discoveries in herbal medicinal products with an emphasis on their molecular targets. Therefore, I cordially invite authors to contribute original articles, as well as reviews, that unravel the molecular mechanisms of naturally-occurring compounds and can provide greater opportunities for their future use.

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.
