We would like to invite you to submit your research work to our Special Issue “Advances in polymer-based materials for corrosion protection.” The serious consequences of metallic corrosion have become a problem of worldwide significance. The common strategy to protect metallic substrates against corrosion is the application of protective organic coatings and corrosion inhibitors. However, the traditional technologies are often not ideal for corrosion protection of the base metal due to their own material properties and process limitations, and a considerable part of these methods contain toxic substances such as lead or chromate, which poses the risk of environmental pollution during the preparation process. Therefore, the development of new high corrosion-resistant materials and their green preparation technology has become one of the pursued goals in the field of metal corrosion and protection.
The polymer materials, which can act as the barrier layer preventing the contact of water and corrosive species with the metallic substrate, have been the most popular and effective method to protect the metals from corrosion. So far, the polymer-based anticorrosion materials and technologies have already attracted more and more attention because of their special and excellent protective properties. The aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest experimental and computational developments in the research field of polymer-based materials for corrosion protection, through a combination of original research papers and review articles from leading scientists around the world.
The manuscript can be submitted now or up until the deadline and will be published on an ongoing basis. I would greatly appreciate your contribution to this Special Issue.

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. Polymers 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 2200 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.
