Special Issue "Environmental Corrosion of Metals and Its Prevention"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2023 | Viewed by 20820
Interests: enviromental corrosion and prevention
Corrosion is a phenomenon in which metal materials interact with the surrounding environment to destroy their properties, causing huge economic losses and environmental problems. According to a related survey, the economic losses caused by corrosion account for about 3–5% of the GDP. Corrosion has always attracted attention in the field of industry and engineering, leading to severe consequence on metal structures. The hazard of the corrosion of metal usually comes from its surrounding environments, such as corrosive ions, microbes, stress and stray currents. Inhibitor, coating and cathodic protection are the main protective methods to prevent the corrosion of metals from the corrosive factors. The study of corrosion mechanism is a basis for effectively inhibiting the corrosion of metals. The protective methods are an application of anticorrosive theory, which further guides the theoretical research. This Special Issue deals with various aspects of environment (e.g., atmosphere, soil and water) corrosion and prevention methods. Below is a non-inclusive list of the topics to be covered:
- Corrosion of metal in simulated or real environments including soil, atmosphere and sea;
- Conversion film including chemical conversion film, electroplating film, thermal-sprayed coating, and so on;
- Coatings including anticorrosive coating, functional coating, and so on;
- Inhibitors in different media and phases;
- Cathodic protection including sacrificial anode protection and impressed current protection.

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.
