Special Issue Information
As the lightest metal structural material, magnesium alloys have attracted the interest of those in the automotive, aerospace, 3C electronics industries, home appliances, and biodegradable devices fields in recent years. However, the properties of Mg alloys are usually poor, including mechanical properties and corrosion residence due to their crystal structure. Approaches to improve the relative properties are urgent required to be developed, including those regarding new processing technologies, new alloy design, texture control, and surface treatment (such as that regarding coating, micro-arc oxidation, and laser).
Finally, methods to produce Mg alloys with high-quality properties are also necessary for the fabrication sectors to promote the use of Mg alloys in industrial applications, such as large-scale engineering structure products (such as automobiles, aircrafts, and 3C electronics), manufacturing technologies (such as casting, extrusion, forging, stamping, additive manufacturing, and 3D printing), small size biodegradable devices (such as vascular stents, wires, and bone nails), and processing techniques (such as those regarding tube extrusion, draw, laser cutting, and powder metallurgy).
Thus, this Special Issue aims to publish the latest high-quality research results on advanced Mg alloy processing and property control technologies, including mechanical and corrosion properties. Furthermore, research regarding the Mg alloys sectors’ manufacturing and processing techniques are welcomed strongly. Short communications, reviews, and regular length original articles are acceptable.

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 2300 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.
