Special Issue "Corrosion Mechanism and Protection Technology of Metallic Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 April 2024 | Viewed by 2229
Interests: high-temperature oxidation, hot corrosion, high-entropy alloys; electrochemistry
According to several studies in the last 30 years, the annual direct cost of corrosion to an industrial company is up to 3.1% of the country’s gross national product. Moreover, the corrosion of metallic materials also significantly impairs human safety and the environment. To mitigate the negative effects associated with corrosion, it is of significant importance to conduct research on corrosion to discover its underlying mechanism and to develop effective and efficient methods to mitigate the corrosion process. The intent of this Special Issue is to provide an overview of the new advances in the relevant study of corrosion, ranging from fundamental studies to applications.
This Special Issue covers a whole spectrum of investigations and studies on metallic corrosion, including stress corrosion cracking, soil corrosion, atmospheric corrosion, and high-temperature corrosion, which is meaningful and helpful to understand the corrosion mechanism in different media. In addition, research on novel methods to mitigate the degradation of base metals, including the development of new coatings, new corrosion inhibitors, and cathodic protection, is 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.
