The aim of this Special Issue is to summarize and highlight the latest achievements in the literature, experimental work, and analytical techniques in the field of corrosion science connected with surface engineering. Though there have been good monographs, books, and articles on similar topics in the past, this issue will be dedicated to the recently developed as well as to the most often applied and paramount methods, techniques, and instrumentations that not only elucidate the corrosion phenomenon, its inhibition, as well as its kinetics but inform about proper surface engineering to decrease and control these undesired phenomena.
The corrosion phenomenon is well known all over the world; it merits far-flung scientific understanding. The scope of corrosion covers a wide range of phenomena: general corrosion, pitting and stress corrosion, cracking, passivity, high temperature oxidation (to mention only some of them), as well as their inhibition, with emphasis on the mechanisms and methods used to control the corrosion. In order to achieve successful results, the cooperation of scientists and industrial specialists is necessary.
Surface engineering, which is an important tool to modify the surface properties and the appearance (with no change in the bulk composition), to provide protection from environmental damage, to enhance mechanical and physical performance by modifications (coating, chemical and physical deposition, anodizing, thermal spraying, mechanical deformation, etc.), includes technologies that convert the very upper surface layer of the substrate that results in increased anticorrosion characteristics. The achieved altered properties depend on the techniques and parameters, on the surface characteristics, on the metal composition and microstructure, and the surface roughness.
The Corrosion Science and Surface Engineering Special Issue would like to inspire engineers, scientists, and specialists working on the topics mentioned above, who will contribute to this important topic with reports on their own work done in the field of corrosion, corrosion inhibition by special surface treatments, as well as in surface characterization. Review papers are also welcome.
We have to keep in mind that the environmental impact of chemicals could be significantly decreased, and the energy consumption and CO2 emission could also be decreased with special surface treatments.
Original papers and critical reviews are awaited in topics such as:
- New appearance in general and localized corrosion, corrosion resistant alloys;
- Principles and modes of corrosion inhibition by surface engineering;
- Recently developed surface modification techniques (chemical, physical, electrochemical, etc.);
- Newest results in surface coatings with microcapsules of self-healing and slow release activity;
- Most effective characterization and testing of surfaces before and after modification.

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. Coatings 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 1600 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.
