We would like to invite you to submit your work to this Special Issue on "Multi-functional Nanostructured Sustainable coatings".
Surface coatings play an efficient role to act as a physical barrier between the metal substrate and external physiological media or extreme working conditions to improve the performance of the components without disturbing the grain morphology. Coatings must have adequate cohesion and adhesion strength to withstand extreme and dynamic working conditions. For biomedical systems, the coating must possess anti-microbial properties along with self-healing/sealing characteristics to counter any scratch or mechanical delamination. The development of multi-layer or hybrid coatings serves to integrate the unique features of each individual layer into a single coating system. However, the selection of appropriate coating architecture is quite challenging to meet the diverse requirements of various applications such as biomedical, electronics, automotive and cutting tool Applications. Nanostructured surface enhances the physical, chemical and biological efficiency of the diversified range of novel applications. In recent times, a number of promising approaches have been developed to fabricate the innovative nanostructured surface, coatings and films.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest developments in the field of Nanostructured functionalized surfaces and coatings, through a combination of original research papers and review articles from leading groups around the world. In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Multi-layered Hybrid Coatings for biomedical, electronics, automotive and cutting tool Applications
- Design and fabrication of novel functionalized surfaces
- Renewable/ Green coating materials
- Smart Nanostructured coatings
- Mechanical, tribological and corrosion analysis of coated Surface
- Coating Failures
- Characterization of innovative nanostructured surfaces
- Sustainability and economic aspects of coating

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.
