Currently, alloys are being rapidly developed. At the same time, environmental degradation, i.e., the corrosion of materials, is a major hindrance. The necessity of improving the efficiencies of propulsion systems, power generation units, gas separation units, and chemical plants has resulted in demand for materials that can withstand corrosion at high temperatures without drastically compromising strength. Also, the reductions in weight of automotive materials have resulted from the use of dissimilar materials and have therefore furthered the challenges of preventing corrosion. Over the years, several new alloys and systems have been developed to combat the most demanding of corrosive environments and rigorous research efforts are being made to understand the mechanism of corrosion or failure using advanced characterization tools.
This Special Issue concerning the environmental degradation of metals aims to present the latest research and trends that highlight advancements in corrosion resistant materials in different environments using advanced characterization and modeling tools.

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. 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 1800 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.
