Protection of Metals and Physical Chemistry of Surfaces (Fizikokhimiya Poverkhnosti i Zashchita Materialov) publishes materials covering all aspects of the physical chemistry of materials and interfaces in various environments. The journal covers all related problems of modern physical chemistry and materials science, including: physicochemical processes at interfaces; adsorption phenomena; complexing; from molecular and supramolecular structures at the interfaces to new substances, materials and coatings; nanoscale and nanostructured materials and coatings, composed and dispersed materials; physicochemical problems of corrosion, degradation and protection; investigation methods for surface and interface systems, processes, structures, materials and coatings. No principal limitation exists concerning systems, types of processes, methods of control and investigation, etc. Conceptual, theoretical, experimental, methodological, instrumental, environmental, and all other possible approaches are welcomed.
