Special Issue in Lubricants: Science and Technology in Nanotribology
Precise control of wear and frictional properties is crucial for applied engineering applications. Being deposited on various engineering materials, functional tribological coatings make it possible to resolve contradictions between the bulk and surface properties of engineering components. In recent decades, significant progress has been achieved in developing new advanced coating materials combining outstanding mechanical, optical, and biomedical properties. We invite you to submit your work to this Special Issue on “Coatings in Tribology: Nanomaterials for Macroscale.” This Special Issue aims to highlight the latest achievements in the design, synthesis, and evaluation of tribological coatings through a combination of original research papers and review articles from leading groups worldwide.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Computer simulation and design strategy;
- Nanocomposite and multilayer tribological coatings;
- Two-dimensional coating materials for tribological applications;
- Structural, mechanical, and tribological properties of coatings;
- Tribological coatings for special applications (space, vacuum, bio, etc.).

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.
