★Special Issue "Polymer-Derived Ceramic Coatings"

★Call for papers★

Dear Colleagues,

Investigations involving different types of coatings represent a rapidly growing research area in physics, materials/polymer science, chemistry, and engineering. The application of coatings derived from preceramic polymers such as polymer and ceramic, coatings, and composite and functional coatings is currently considered as the one of the most effective methods to tailor surface properties of materials to specific requirements for conventional and advanced technological applications in, e.g., electronics, self-cleaning surfaces, and to obtain protection from corrosion and oxidation. The polymer-derived ceramic (PDC) route is based on the synthesis of preceramic polymers as suitable and highly pure precursors to supply after pyrolysis ceramics with a desired phase distribution and homogeneity. The application of the coatings is possible with simple spry- or dip-coating techniques. Additionally, the transformation of polymer coatings based on the PDC route into ceramics is possible not only in a furnace but also by using alternative methods like laser radiation or plasma conditions. Ceramics with various pore scales can be also made from them. This Special Issue focuses on the current state-of-art of surface modification and ceramic coating development of polymeric materials, and scientific issues related to the synthesis, characterization, and application of PDCs-based coatings.

★When you choose Coatings, you benefit from:

- High visibility: indexed by the Science Citation Index Expanded (Web of Science), Scopus and Inspec (IET);
- Owning the full copyright to your work, and your article is free to read for anyone at any time;
- A rapid publication process: manuscripts are peer-reviewed and a first decision provided to authors approximately 13.1 days after submission; acceptance to publication is undertaken in 2.9 days (median values for papers published in this journal in the second half of 2020).

★Article Processing Charges★

Coatings is fully open access. Open access (unlimited and free access by readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as indicated by several studies. Open access is supported by the authors and their institutes. The Article Processing Charges (APC) for accepted papers are CHF 1600. You may be entitled to a discount if you have previously received a discount code in MDPI or if your institute is participating in the MDPI Institutional Open Access Program (IOAP), for more information see:

For this special invitation, we would like to offer you a *25% discount* on APC. We hope that you choose to take advantage of this offer and look forward to collaborating with you.
