It is a pleasure to introduce you to this Special Issue dedicated to environmentally-assisted cracking (EAC), the premature fracture of susceptible materials under the synergistic action of tensile loading and a specific environment. Although EAC phenomena are not the most widespread forms of corrosion, they are very aggressive, with the great economic and environmental impacts, and they sometimes even threaten human life. For this reason, they are the subject of numerous studies. Within EAC, we find phenomena such as stress corrosion, fatigue corrosion, and hydrogen embrittlement. The latter is extremely timely, considering that many industrialized countries see hydrogen as a source of green energy that will play an important role in decarbonising energy consumption. The transport, storage, and subsequent reoxidation of hydrogen represent a great challenge for the materials of the future, which must ensure great structural performance whilst guaranteeing operational safety. This Special Issue aims to be a collection of the most recent research on the problems of EAC, above all but not limited to the industry of production, transport, and the storage of traditional and innovative energy sources. Other aspects of EAC-related work are also welcome.

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. 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.
