Recent Advances in Corrosion Protection of Metallic Materials

It is well-known that corrosion has a huge economic, environmental, and sustainability impact on virtually all facets of metallic materials, including power facilities, integrated circuits, chemical industries, desalination, bridges, oil and gas pipeline, etc. Annual costs of corrosion and its consequences are estimated in the region of 3~5% of GDP for industrialized countries of the world. Most of all, the disposal and further substitution of the damaged elements involves an additional consumption of energy and resources. The subject of corrosion protection has been a conventional research topic in the past few decades, but more advanced knowledge is still required to win the battle. A comprehensive understanding of this phenomenon will guarantee an improved design to reduce the dramatic consequences.

This special issue focuses on the recent progress and advancements in the fight against metal corrosion, including advanced mechanisms, efficient testing techniques and the main influencing factors, and finding the most suitable procedures to avoid or slow down its propagation, such as coatings, inhibitors or cathodic protection, among others. We encourage academic and industry researchers to submit high quality original research articles, reviews, and critical perspectives on topics including, but not limited to the following:

  • Corrosion mechanisms and methods
  • Environmentally benign corrosion inhibitors
  • Corrosion in the energy industry
  • Progress in laboratory testing of corrosion
  • Corrosion in oil and gas industry
  • Atmospheric and marine corrosion
  • High temperature corrosion and protection
  • Microbiologically influenced corrosion
  • Cathodic protection
  • Computational approaches used in corrosion inhibition
  • Smart corrosion protection strategies
  • Other protective films and pretreatments
