Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cerium is the most abundant element of the rare Earth group and is one of the most abundant metals on the Earth’s crust. In nature, it is found in combination with other elements; however, it is easily extracted as oxide. Cerium (III) oxide (Ce2O3) is not stable and readily oxidizes to cerium (IV) oxide (CeO2). Cerium (IV) oxide is usually obtained by calcination of oxalate.

The unique chemical-physical characteristics, the mechanical properties, and the low cost make CeO2 an attractive material for several applications, including catalysis, glass technology, sensors, pigments and cosmetics, radioprotection, metal and steel protection, and energy, as well as in toxicology and as electrolytes.

In this Special Issue, short communications, full papers, and review articles are welcome on innovative synthesis methods and characterization of cerium oxide materials, and on the latest applications in the previously listed chemical, industrial, and technological fields.

Dr. Marco Martino
Guest Editor

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.
