Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Corrosion is the process of the deterioration of metals and alloys due to the reaction with the surrounding environment, particularly in the presence of oxygen and moisture. This phenomenon can weaken the structural integrity of the material, leading to functional failure.

Corrosion inhibition is the technique of preventing or reducing the corrosion rate of metals and alloys by using chemical compounds. This is done by adding inhibitors to the surrounding environment or coating the surface with inhibitor substances. Inhibitors work by forming a protective layer on the metal surface, hindering the reaction between the metal and corrosive agents. The effectiveness of corrosion inhibition depends on the type of material, the environment, and the inhibitor selected. Proper selection of inhibitors can save significant costs and resources, and ultimately help to prolong the lifespan of the equipment. Corrosion inhibitors have widespread applications in suppressing or at least mitigating the corrosion process of metals in different fields, spanning from industrial sectors to construction materials to surface treatments for cultural heritage.

This Special Issue is oriented toward all corrosion issues associated with the fundamentals of the corrosion science of metals, alloys, and materials; corrosion protection; and testing to assess corrosion resistance. Subjects of interest include the corrosion behavior of metals and their alloys. The development of methods to prevent and control the corrosion of metals and their alloys is also of interest.

I am pleased to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all 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.
