Special Issue Information
Magnesium is abundant in the Earth’s crust and seawater. Mg alloy is the lightest metallic structural material, with the advantages of high specific strength, high specific stiffness, good electromagnetism shield, good damping capacity, good machinability, easy recycling, etc. Therefore, it has extremely broad application prospects and has drawn considerable interest in the fields of automobile, electronics, electrical appliances, transportation, aerospace, aviation, and the national defense military industry. However, low strength, poor ductility and workability, and high susceptibility to corrosion strongly limit its applications. In recent years, some remarkable progress has been achieved in the study and development of Mg alloys. The ultimate tensile strength of bulk high-strength Mg alloys can reach 710 MPa. The elongation to failure at room temperature of rolled sheets of Mg alloys with high ductility can be nearly 50%. Corrosion resistance from the environment is also believed to occur in a Mg–Li alloys. In addition, Mg alloys are gradually showing application potential in emerging industry, such as biodegradable metals in the biomedical field, functional material for hydrogen storage, and so on.
This Special Issue will compile recent developments and excellent results in the field of Mg alloys to accelerate the large-scale application of Mg alloys. The articles presented in this Special Issue will cover but are not limited to the following topics: alloy development, microstructural evolution and mechanical properties, solidification and cast alloys, deformation and wrought alloys, welding and joining, corrosion and surface treatment, modeling and simulation, primary production and recycling, biomedical and functional applications, etc.

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).
