Special Issue "Theoretical and Experimental Assessments of Corrosion Inhibitors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2024 | Viewed by 2837
The theoretical and experimental investigations of corrosion inhibitors for metallic substrates are among the most widely used research systems in the field of corrosion science. These inhibitor molecules develop a protective layer to minimize metal corrosion, which prevents the metal from coming into direct contact with the corrosive media and, therefore, decreases the corrosion rate. They act on the metal surface by using an adsorption mechanism. The current state of knowledge on corrosion mechanisms leads to a strong demand for experimental, theoretical and modelling studies.
The aim of this Special Issue is to consolidate recent findings related to corrosion and the deterioration of materials, and to give the opportunity to researchers to publish their latest results to understand or solve the corrosion problems of materials using corrosion inhibitors complemented by theoretical approaches to explain the mechanism of inhibition. We invite the submission of high-quality original papers and critical reviews.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
- Corrosion fundamentals;
- Corrosion inhibition;
- Temperature effect;
- Adsorption isotherms;
- Surface characterization (SEM, EDX, AFM, etc.);
- DFT calculation;
- Monte Carlo simulation;
- Molecular dynamics simulation.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Coatings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
