    Special Issue on Phytochemistry and Its Applications 


    Phytochemicals are chemicals derived from plants. Phytochemistry strive to describe the structures of the large number of secondary metabolic compounds found in plants, the functions of these compounds in human and plant biology, and the biosynthesis of these compounds. Plants synthesize phytochemicals for many reasons, including to protect themselves against insect attacks and plant diseases.  The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in this area of phytochemistry and its applications.


    In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore phytochemistry and its applications. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Separation and purification of phytochemicals
    • Phytochemicals analysis
    • Alkaloids
    • Structural defenses
    • Glycosides
    • Polyphenols


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


    Please kindly specify the Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue - Phytochemistry and Its Applications” should be selected during your submission.
