Advanced energy production or storage systems increasingly require that metals perform in increasingly aggressive environments. Higher temperatures, intense radiation, extreme chemistries, high stresses, aggressive duty cycles and longer life characterize advanced nuclear and fossil power, battery and other energy storage, fuel cell and propulsion systems. Conventional ferritic and austenitic stainless steels and nickel-base alloys have given way to higher alloyed systems involving precipitation hardening to increase strength and creep resistance. A transition is also taking place in the automotive, truck and heavy equipment industry where increasingly stringent fuel economy and emissions standards are requiring a shift from the traditional steels and aluminum alloys to more exotic corrosion resistant stainless steels, nickel-base and titanium alloys.
The goal of the special issue “Advanced Corrosion Resistant Alloys for Energy Production, Storage, and Transportation Systems” is to present several state of the technology papers that discuss the advances in metals development as well as the challenges associated with the use of metals in the extreme environments in the nuclear, fossil, battery, fuel cell, energy storage aircraft propulsion and ground transportation systems.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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 quarterly 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 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
