The scope of this Special Issue “Mechanical, Corrosion Resistance, and Antibacterial Properties of Steels” is the research on the latest developments in areas of materials mechanical properties and characterization, pure/applied corrosion and phenomena, and advanced understanding of bacterial adhesion with induced antibacterial properties of steels.
Authors are invited to present their research using novel approaches related to basic material properties and microstructure affecting the mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, as well as antibacterial properties of steels. Appropriate submissions should reflect recent developments in the science and technology of steels through the latest scientific research achievements in new processes and their dissemination and applications.
The papers are welcome to provide:
- Advanced understanding of the structure and mechanical properties of steels as well as the discovery or development and characterization of the structure of improved steels with novel functional or mechanical properties of potential engineering interests;
- Latest developments in areas of corrosion mechanisms and corrosion control, passivity, anodic oxidation, and biochemical corrosion;
- Improvements of the antibacterial properties of steels by changing the chemical composition of steels or by the application of specific coatings.
This Special Issue will publish original peer-reviewed papers in the fields of surface science and engineering and forms an important link between metallurgists, materials scientists, and all investigators of metallic materials for different demanding applications.

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. 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 2000 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.
