10% DISCOUNT for ICQA members – The First International Conference on Antioxidants: Sources, Methods, Health Benefits and Industrial Applications – 10–12 May 2023, Barcelona, Spain

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the first International Conference on Antioxidants: Sources, Methods, Health Benefits, and Industrial Applications.

The conference is organized by the MDPI open access journal Antioxidants (Impact Factor 7.675) and will be held as a three-day event in Barcelona, Spain, 10-12 May, 2023.

Antioxidants represent a huge area of investigation for researchers from many disciplines, and their importance in a variety of fields from health to food to innovative materials is increasingly appreciated.

Despite the enormous amount of research work related to this issue, our knowledge needs to be improved on the mechanism of action, the bioaccesibility and bioavailability of dietary antioxidants, oxidative stress and antioxidant defence systems, antioxidant-based therapeutic strategies, antioxidant functional food, and the design of biomaterials with antioxidant properties for use in biomedical applications or functional packaging. We have to continue pursuing the search for new natural sources of antioxidants while shifting toward sustainable methodologies for their extraction, and, finally, we need to standardize and validate the methods for their analysis and for evaluating and ranking the antioxidant power.

The main topics and sessions of the conference will cover:

The conference will host a number of internationally renowned speakers and invites submissions for oral presentations and posters. We wish the meeting may offer a unique opportunity for direct communication between scholars, favoring personal contacts between younger and experienced researchers on advanced research topics and technological issues.

All presenters at the conference will be encouraged to submit a full manuscript of their presentation for consideration for publication in a Special Issue of Antioxidants .

We look forward to seeing you at this exciting meeting in Barcelona.

SPECIAL OFFER – 10% discount for ICQA members.

Abstract submission is now open until 20th January 2023:
