Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
As human civilization continues to develop, our constantly growing demand for energy has called for extensive studies to find novel, effective, and environmentally friendly materials. Metals and metal compounds, such as nanoparticles, composites, and coatings, are attracting wide scientific interest due to the unique properties associated with their multifunctionality in various applications, such as in (photo)catalysis, photovoltaics, energy conversion, storage, and corrosion-resistance devices, various sensors, mixed-oxide varistors, etc., serving large-scale industry needs.
Therefore, we would like to invite you to submit your original research to this Special Issue of Coatings entitled “Recent Studies of Metal and Metal Compound Coatings: Microstructure, Properties, and Applications”. The goal of this Special Issue includes all aspects of research related to metal and metal compounds properties and applications, including experimental and numerical studies, case studies, and reviews.
We encourage you to submit manuscripts containing scientific findings related, but not limited to, the following topics of interest:
- Photo(catalytic) coatings;
- Composite materials for water splitting;
- Composite materials for energy storage or conversion;
- The fabrication and characterization of nanoparticle-based coatings;
- Corrosion protection;
- Corrosion resistance;
- Sustainable coatings.

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.
