Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

For a continuous building of social infrastructure and economic development, environmental compatibility is a crucial requirement for the metallic structure materials used in industrial fields with high-temperature environments, such as energy conversion system (nuclear power plants, fossil fuel power plants, fuel cell system, etc.), gas turbines industry, chemical industry, etc. It is essential to validate metallic materials against high-temperature applications. In order to prevent corrosion degradation and oxidation processes, new corrosion-resistant alloys and protective coatings are needed to serve an extended lifetime for structural materials; it is important to understand the corrosion and cracking mechanism of materials performed in such extreme environments.

I am pleased to invite and welcome you to contribute to this Special Issue, titled “Corrosion and Cracking Behavior of Metallic Materials in High-Temperature Environment”. The aim of this Issue is to discuss the corrosion and cracking behavior of metallic materials and coatings applied in high-temperature environments. The topics covered include general corrosion, localized corrosion, oxidation, stress corrosion cracking, corrosion fatigue, liquid metal embrittlement, molten salt corrosion, etc. Articles which focus on material design, modification, treatment, protection, corrosion test technique, and corrosion simulation, which are relevant to the corrosion and prevention of materials, are also welcomed.

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.
