Welcome to the second special issue of CORROSION devoted to current trends in magnesium corrosion research. This issue follows our original guest co-edited special issue published in May 2017, as well as two prior issues dedicated to magnesium and aluminum-magnesium alloys. The high susceptibility of magnesium and its alloys to corrosion is acknowledged to be the principal barrier to its widespread use as a structural metal. Hence, the subject of corrosion and protection of magnesium and its alloys remains one of the most highly cited fields in corrosion science and continues to stimulate significant interest and debate.
