Phenolic compounds are a large family of metabolites that result from the secondary metabolism of plants. Novel insights about phenolic chemical structure, analytical methods, therapeutic effects, sensory properties, viticultural practices to modify their content and the re-use of natural compounds from agro-industrial wastes have been gathered in this book. A comprehensive overview on phenolic compounds and neurodegenerative disorders, highlighting their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties and their effects on Parkinson's disease have been compiled. In relation to antioxidant properties, the metabolism and bioavailability of several hydroxycinnamic acids present in coffee have been studied in detail, and also the methods to determine antioxidant capacity have been included. Different strategies in order to improve the extraction and determination of phenolic compounds in a complex matrix by analytical techniques are provided, reporting problems and new analytical solutions. The role of these compounds in color stabilization and also in bitterness and astringency perception has been reported. Moreover, the interactions that take place among wine non-volatile and volatile compounds have been briefly introduced. Furthermore, the use of cover crops in vineyards and their effects on agronomical and enological behavior - particularly, their impact on phenolic compounds - have been highlighted. Finally, the biological properties of phenolic compounds from industrial wastes have been tackled, since they are a promising alternative to transform agro-industrial wastes into a source of natural and healthy compounds.
