Interests: plasma electrolytic oxidation; corrosion; hybrid coatings; light alloys; tribology
We would like to invite you to submit your work to a Special Issue on "Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO) Coatings". Plasma electrolytic oxidation (PEO), also known as micro-arc oxidation (MAO), functionalizes surfaces, improving the mechanical, thermal, and corrosion performance of metallic substrates, along with other tailored properties (e.g., biocompatibility, catalysis, antibacterial response, self-lubrication, etc.). The extensive field of applications of this technique ranges from structural components, in particular, in the transport sector, to more advanced fields, such as bioengineering.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present the state-of-the-art of PEO for Al, Mg, Ti, Zr alloys and steels, through a combination of original research papers, short communications and review articles from leading research groups around the world.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Fundamental understanding of PEO process: mechanistic study and modeling of coating growth;
- Properties and performance of PEO coatings: corrosion, mechanical, catalytic and/or electric evaluation;
- Hybrid PEO coatings;
- Functionalization of PEO coatings;
- Active protection based on PEO;
- Bio-applications of PEO coatings;
- Advanced PEO processes.

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 1800 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.
