The focus issue deals with all aspects of localized corrosion with the purpose of summarizing recent advances in fundamental and applied aspects of passivity breakdown, techniques to study initiation and propagation of localized corrosion, the effect of microstructure, advanced materials, as well as mitigation methods for localized corrosion. Papers presenting experimental and theoretical approaches to understanding localized corrosion are welcome. The issue is open to all interested authors who may submit review, critical review, perspective, methods, communication, and original research articles.
