    About the Special Issue

    Ensuring food safety worldwide is one of the priority issues. Fast, accurate and sensitive analytical methods are needed to protect human health at many stages of food production, including crop cultivation, animal rearing, food processing, packaging, transportation and storage. Traditional analytical methods are often complex, time-consuming and require sophisticated instruments and technicians, releasing environmentally hazardous wastes, limiting their extensive application for practical and on-site analysis. Therefore, the emerging new, rapid and reliable analytical methods are expected to meet the requirements of this complexity for the trace determination of different compounds in food matrix. The main aim of this issue will be to review innovative and current topics for sensitive and selective analysis of many different molecules or substances such as drugs, pesticides, proteins, enzymes, contaminants, residues, additives, heavy metal ions etc., in foods, natural and herbal products, depending on the advances analysis technology. This special issue will contribute to the field of analytical chemistry on food analysis since the recent developments about analysis technology are important and continuous. This special issue focuses on combining analytical methods such as spectroscopy, chromatography including novel sample preparation procedures and electrochemistry with advanced technologies. Moreover, this special issue aims to gather original research articles and reviews devoted to the application of advanced analytical methods for the monitoring of several compounds in foods.   

    The subtopics to be covered within this issue are listed below:

    · Synthesis and high-efficiency combinations of new-generation nanomaterials
