Special Issue Information
Icing is a ubiquitous and unavoidable phenomenon that occurs in nature through various means such as frosting, condensation freezing, and frozen rain. It is a longstanding problem that disrupts human society through impacts on many aspects of our daily life. For instance, ice formation and accumulation can cause mechanical failures in vehicles and aircraft; structural damage found in wind turbines, residential houses, and power lines; and optical malfunction in telescope lens and windows. Icing also has a long history of creating life-threatening hazards, ranging from slipping accidents to traffic collisions. All of these icing-induced problems present many challenges and lead to a great demand for developing anti-icing strategies.
Therefore, we would like to invite you to submit your original research to this Coatings Special Issue entitled “Hydrophobic and Anti-Icing Coatings”. The goal of this Special Issue includes all aspects of research related to hydrophobic and anti-icing coatings, including theoretical and application-oriented papers, experimental and numerical studies, case studies, and reviews.
We encourage you to send manuscripts containing scientific findings within the broad fields of coatings. Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Anti-icing coatings
- Superhydrophobic coatings
- Artificial and natural icing
- Self-healable coatings
- Experimental testing
- Numerical modeling
- Icing flashover
- Icing forecast
- Bionic deicing
- Sustainable coatings
- Anticorrosive coatings
- Testing method
- Insulation materials
- Thermal conductive materials
- Electrical contact materials
- Composite materials

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 2200 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.
