Special Issue "Corrosion Inhibition"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2017
For more than a century, corrosion inhibitors have been added to aggressive environments to protect metallic materials. Currently, they are integral to structural integrity strategies across a wide range of industrial sectors, including oil production, chemical processing, and aerospace. On this basis, there is significant ongoing research in this area seeking to optimise the functionality of corrosion inhibitors, ranging from development of new active species to gaining mechanistic insight. The goal of this Special Issue is to take of snapshot of the current state-of-the-art in corrosion inhibition research. Contributions (either original research or review articles) are encouraged in following areas:
- Elucidation of inhibited interfaces through spectroscopy, diffraction, and microscopy
- Modelling of corrosion inhibition
- New approaches to characterisation, including in situ techniques
- Corrosion inhibition energetics/kinetics
- Corrosion inhibition in extreme environments (e.g., at high temperatures)
- High throughput screening of corrosion inhibitors
- Inhibitors in (self-healing) coatings

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 papers will be 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 1000 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.
