Our researchers in Applied Science journal

Dear Colleagues!

Andrei Suzdaltsev (suzdaltsev_av@ihte.uran.ru),Head of the  Radiochemistry lab, PhD in chemistry,  and Oksana Rakhmanova (oksana_rahmanova@ihte.uran.ru), researcher of the Electrolysis Processes Lab, PhD in physics and math,  became editors of the special issue of the Applied Sciences journal  (Impact Factor 2.474). This journal is published on the online open access platform MDPI. The topic of the special issue is “Metal-Based Composite Materials: Preparation, Structure, Properties, and Applications”. It is devoted to the analysis of current trends and recent advances in the synthesis of new composite materials based on metals. Such composites are increasingly used in civil, automotive and aerospace engineering, shipbuilding, robotics, nuclear power, portable power devices, biomedicine, electronic devices, and portable aircraft.

Non-ferrous metals are often used as the matrix for composites of aluminum, magnesium, nickel, titanium and their alloys, modifiers with boron, carbon structures, borides, carbides, nitrides and oxides of refractory metals and high-strength steel. For high temperature composites, tungsten or molybdenum fibers are used.
Despite the large number of scientific works on this topic, the search for new methods for the synthesis of such composites in order to improve and optimize their structure and properties is urgent. Therefore, completed experimental and theoretical work aimed for creation the methods for the synthesis of composites, as well as search for new materials for inclusion in this special issue, are welcomed.
