Flavonoids are natural anti-oxidants derived from plants with the ability to sequester free radicals. Antioxidants are molecule that inhibit oxidation and harmful activities of free radicals. Natural oxidants are phytochemicals in the form of secondary metabolites that acts as reducing agents, hydrogen donators and single oxygen quenches. Thus, flavonoids may play a significant role in the decreased risk of chronic disease associated with a diet rich in plant-derived foods. Flavonoids are also common constituents of plants in traditional medicine to treat a wide range of diseases. The studies on flavonoids in traditional medicine have remarkably increased in the recent years. The volume on “Flavonoids and Antioxidants” of Recent Progress in Medicinal Plants Series explores structural variations of all subclasses of flavonoids, techniques for isolation, purification and determination of structures, chemical synthesis, biosynthesis and genetic, patterns of distribution in plants and uses. Simultaneously, the properties of antioxidants have been presented to understand their mechanisms, to clarify their activities and discussed to emphasize the importance of flavonoids by displaying a wide range of pharmacological and biochemical actions, such as antioxidants, antibacterial, antifungal, antithrombotic, antimutagenic, antiobesity and anticarcinogenetic activities. In brief, this Volume aims to describe those flavonoids and antioxidants, which possess many important bioactivities in a comprehensive and organized manner. The 24 chapters contributed by 77 contributors deals with the recent findings coupled with review related to all above aspects of flavonoids and antioxidants. Its contributors are form 15 countries namely: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, Czech Republic, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Poland, Spain, Taiwan and Turkey. This special volume is designed for professionals of interdisciplinary health sciences, food technology, pharmaceutical sciences, pharmacognosy, pharmacology, agriculture, botany, medicine, therapeutics, traditional medicine, complementary and alternative medicine, aromatherapy, herbalism, medical and public health sciences, healthcare professionals of other various disciplines, policy-makers and marketing and economic strategists. It is addressed to undergraduates, post-graduates, teachers and researchers.
