Corrosion is a global issue, which challenges a wide range of industrial sectors. Durable and active coatings are some of the most frequently used and effective methods for mitigating corrosion. We cordially invite you to submit your coatings research work to this Special Issue on “Coatings for Corrosion Mitigation”. With this Special Issue, we hope to present an array of cutting edge coatings research for corrosion protection to a broad audience interested in conservation and sustainability.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Organic and Inorganic coatings for corrosion protection
- Corrosion inhibitors
- Smart coatings for corrosion protection (functional coatings and self-healing coating)
- Electrochemical test methods for corrosion evaluation
- Sol-Gel coatings
