Special Issue Information
This Special Issue of Metals focuses on studies that describe innovative and original analyses concerning the corrosion and electrochemical performance of structural materials. The detriment in the mechanical properties or the waste of raw materials are among the main consequences of the corrosion. Thus, future efforts should concentrate on better understanding the factors that assist in the development of this phenomenon with the aim of building more sustainable structures. The following is a short description of the several research topics suggested for this Special Issue:
- The use of electrochemical methods to characterize the corrosion performance in several media, including atmospheric, marine, or high-temperature environments. To include these methodologies to control the in-situ performance in real structures, non-destructive tests are particularly attractive;
- The assessment of protective methods to prevent and/or lessen the corrosion process, with the final purpose of prolonging the service life of existing and new structures;
- An analysis of the corrosion mechanisms to establish the nature of the phenomenon;
- Desirable corrosion reactions, for example, anodizing, to assist the corrosion resistance or for decorative purposes.

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. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
