Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Corrosion processes lead to the deterioration of metallic structures, which can result in both significant financial losses and the endangerment of human lives and the environment. For this reason, various corrosion protection methods are applied in practice to prolong the lifetime of metallic structures. In particular, organic coatings have been successfully utilized in various industries as a barrier against the corrosion and oxidation of metals and alloys.

The field of coatings has witnessed tremendous progress in the synthesis, application, and characterization of organic coatings. The combination of novel spectroscopic, microscopic, and electrochemical characterization methods, with enhanced sensitivity and improved lateral and temporal resolution, with computational simulation and modeling, has deepened our understanding of the formation, corrosion protection, and degradation mechanisms of organic coatings. In parallel, various techniques have been developed to improve the application method and durability of the organic coating on complex industrial parts. Organic coatings with self-healing or pH-sensitive properties, as well as those with improved adhesion have been developed.

To cover the recent progress in the field, it is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript on “Organic Coatings for Improved Corrosion Resistance” in this Special Issue of Materials. Both original scientific papers and reviews are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
