    Special Issue on Flavonoids Research


    Flavonoids are an important class of plant secondary metabolites with a 2 - phenyl ketone (flavone) structure. Flavonoids, which widely exist in many plants both as free states and as glycosides, play an important role in plant growth, development, blossom and fruit, and prevention of microorganisms and diseases. And the flavonoids extracts, also possess many interesting bioactivities and valuable pharmacological activities. Up to now, flavonoids extracts have been found to function in the treatment of cardiovascular disease, antitumor, antibacterial and antiviral, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and analgesic and liver protection, and a large number of studies also show that flavonoids have the pharmacological activities of antihypertensive, reducing blood fat, anti-aging, improving immunity and so on. As one of the most important plant secondary metabolites, Flavonoids are of great attractions to researchers.


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

    • Food sources of flavonoids
    • Biological effects of flavonoids
    • Nutritional significance of flavonoids
    • Extraction, separation and analysis of flavonoids
    • Flavonoids in the treatment and prevention of diseases
    • Dietary intake of flavonoids and health
    • Bioflavonoid

    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 notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Flavonoids Research” should be chosen during your submission.
