Interests: superhydrophobic coatings and surface modification for reduction of ice adhesion, drag rduction, bio-fouling as well as medical applications; energy materials
The strong adhesion of ice to almost all kinds of surfaces is an overwhelming problem in cold countries. Common examples include: scraping off ice from car windshields, skidding on icy roads, power outages due to icing on electrical cables and insulators, icing on aircraft wings and wind mills, etc. Although investigations around the world have been carried out for decades, so as to find a solution to this problem of ice adhesion, literature is relatively scarce in this field.
This Special Issue provides a forum for the basic aspects, theories, and mechanisms of adhesion and surface science in general, and deals with applications in all areas of technology. Thus, the objective here is to offer to our readers a unique Special Issue exposing the state of the art regarding ice adhesion.

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.
