Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recently, the utilization of biomass as a raw material for the preparation of metal corrosion inhibitors has garnered considerable attention in the field of corrosion inhibition. Highly efficient and eco-friendly corrosion inhibitors can be prepared through extraction, modification, and other technical means that do not contain harmful heavy metals. Biomass-based inhibitors have several advantages over traditional corrosion inhibitors, such as being sourced sustainably, non-toxic, non-hazardous, and affordable. Furthermore, the effective exploitation of biomass resources helps support their sustainable utilization by reducing waste and pollution. Given the increasing focus on biomass and its potential ecological benefits, the use of biomass as a corrosion inhibitor is a promising area for development.

In particular, the topics of interest includes, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Conducting experimental studies and theoretical simulations of biomass corrosion inhibitors;
  • Developing industrial applications of biomass corrosion inhibitors;
  • Investigating novel methods for preparing biomass corrosion inhibitors;
  • Designing compounded high-efficiency biomass corrosion inhibitors;
  • Examining the effect of temperature on the performance of biomass corrosion inhibitors;
  • Carrying out toxicological evaluations of biomass corrosion inhibitors;
  • Studying the degradation behavior of biomass corrosion inhibitors.

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.

The shell of viviparid snail extract (SVSE) was prepared by a simple and environmentally friendly hydrolysis method and the corrosion inhibition of carbon steel (CS) by SVSE in 1 M HCl was investigated. HPLC and FTIR analysis showed that the main component of SVSE was a mixture of various amino acids. The results of electrochemical and surface analysis showed that SVSE is a hybrid corrosion inhibitor with a corrosion inhibition efficiency of 95.23%. In addition, the adsorption behavior of SVSE on CS surfaces was also investigated in depth by adsorption isotherms, quantum chemistry (QC) and molecular dynamics simulations (MDS). Full article
