Corrosion is a multifaceted degradation phenomenon with wide-ranging consequences in many industries and environments. The corrosion behavior of materials in corrosive media depends critically on the nature of the passive film and corrosion products formed during the corrosion process. In this Special Edition, the emphasis will be on these passive film and corrosion products which form during the corrosion process in aqueous media. Mild steel and stainless steels are popular materials in a number of industries and applications, and their corrosion behavior is often reported. However, there are a wide variety of other non-ferrous metals and alloys, which find application in numerous products and processes. The focus in this Special Edition will be on these different non-ferrous alloys and metals, e.g., titanium, magnesium, and aluminum alloys, copper, brass, and bronze alloys, cermet and metal matrix composites, high-entropy alloys, and any material not containing iron as a major element and the nature and composition of passive film and corrosion products formed on them during any aqueous corrosion process. Information obtained by any surface analysis technique, or combination thereof, which can provide such information and is utilized in the study, can be described.

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.
