    Special Issue on Research on Phytochemistry


    Phytochemistry is the study of phytochemicals, which are chemicals derived from plants. Those studying 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. Phytochemistry can be considered sub-fields of botany or chemistry. Activities can be led in botanical gardens or in the wild with the aid of ethanobotany. The applications of the discipline can be for pharmacognosy or the discovery of new drugs, or as an aid for plant physiology studies.  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 research on phytochemistry.


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


    • Separation and purification of phytochemicals
    • Plant chemistryplant biochemistry
    • Chemical ecology and medicinal plant
    • Plant secondary metabolites
    • Phytochemicals analysis
    • Bioavailability and pharmacokinetics of phytochemicals
    • Alkaloids &Glycosides
    • Structural defenses
    • Polyphenols
    • Structure and bioactivities of phytochemicals
    • Chemistry and Bioactive Products


    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 – Research on Phytochemistry” should be selected during your submission.
