    Special Issue on Polyphenols


    Polyphenols are naturally present in plants. Unlike vitamins and minerals, polyphenols are not essential nutrients meaning that they are not required by the human body for sustaining life but they can exert beneficial functions. Polyphenols have been recognized for their antioxidant properties and as they are the most widespread substances with antioxidant potential in our diet, their biological activities are being investigated by many researchers.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring polyphenols. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Biological role in plants
    • Metabolism
    • Phytochemicals in food
    • Chemical structure and synthesis
    • Chemical properties and uses
    • Health effects of polyphenols
    • Research techniques


    Authors should read over the journal’s Authors’ Guidelines carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal at Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue – Polyphenols” should be selected during your submission.
