Magnesium alloy is considered to be the best green material in the 21st century due to its low density, high specific strength and stiffness, good damping performance, biodegradation and biocompatibility, large hydrogen-storage capacity, and high theoretical specific capacity for battery applications. It has great application potential in the fields of aerospace, automobiles, the electronics industry, clinical medicine and energy sectors, etc.
However, the relatively low absolute strength, poor plasticity and inferior corrosion resistance of magnesium alloys impede their applications as structural materials, while their fast degradation rate and uneven corrosion hinder their application as implant materials. In addition, the narrow hydrogen charging and discharging window of magnesium alloy also restricts their application in energy storage materials.
This Special Issue of Metals focuses on relationships between forming and microstructure, structure and performance of magnesium alloys. The papers presented in this Special Issue give an account of the scientific and technological state-of-the-art of magnesium alloys in 2022 (see Keywords/Topics below). Your contribution to this Special Issue will be highly valuable and appreciated. We invite you to contribute the research work that studies the relationships between microstructure, mechanical properties, corrosion and coating so as to promote the application of magnesium alloys.

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. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
