Losses due to corrosion are huge, and its mitigation measures have direct social, economic, and technological benefits. Corrosion and corrosion-assisted cracking often stand out as critical and non-trivial challenges in applications ranging from the selection of construction materials for nuclear waste containers, desalination plants, or durable electronic devices to the use of magnesium alloys as novel biodegradable temporary implants.
The intriguing aspects of corrosion that make its mitigation challenging are as follows:
- it is a thermodynamic reality that is generally inevitable;
- it has high costs;
- it is an age-old phenomenon and most measures for its mitigation have been investigated with considerable success; therefore, it is often challenging to come up with something disruptive;
- any disruptive and successful approach has the potential to be highly rewarding given the huge economic losses due to corrosion;
- the emergence of new materials, such as graphene, additively manufactured materials, high-entropy alloys, etc., bring new opportunities for corrosion research and development.
Some of the recent topics in corrosion domain are:
- advances in corrosion resistant coatings;
- corrosion of bioimplants;
- corrosion in modern and traditional energy systems;
- corrosion of additively manufactured materials and high-entropy alloys;
- corrosion modelling.
Corrosion, including the science and technology of its mitigation, is therefore like an antique: old but fascinating. The Special Issue “The 15th Anniversary of Materials—Recent Advances in Corrosion” will cater to the old as well as the new domains of corrosion mechanisms, monitoring, and mitigation.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
