Almost all metals and metallic alloys are constantly threatened by dry or wet corrosion. At temperatures of 400 °C and higher, failures of metallic components may be due to, or accelerated by, chemical reactions with the work environment or the worked material. High-temperature oxidation, metal dusting, and other degradations may be induced by the exposure to air or complex gaseous mixtures involving various species (combustion gases, carbon and sulfur oxides, chlorine and hydrogen chlorides, water vapor, etc.). Hot corrosion may result from the contact with various liquids (molten salts, CMAS, glasses, and even metals). Slag and scoria may be also responsible for the degradation of alloys in high-temperature conditions. Combined or not with mechanical stresses, hot oxidation and corrosion affecting steels, superalloys, and refractory alloys play an important role in the sustainability of components made of these alloys and used in the hottest parts of aeronautical and power generation turbines, solid oxide fuel cells, or in the processes exploited in the petroleum, glass-forming, and waste treatment industries, for example.
The latest evolutions in metallic alloy compositions (e.g., recently developed superalloys and refractory alloys, high entropy alloys), in fabrication methods (e.g., additive manufacturing, new types of protective coatings), and in use conditions (e.g., increased temperatures and more complex corrosive fluids) may lead to new hot oxidation/corrosion results. This Special Issue of Metals aims to disseminate these results by giving them high visibility in the scientific and industrial communities.
Other recent results concerning alloys which are more classically elaborated and used, new findings concerning oxidation and corrosion phenomena, the resulting products and subsurface changes, and modelling will also be welcomed.

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.
