Information  from Husnu

Husnu is a member within the Euro-MIC COST framework. This project is funded by the European Union and enables scientists to bridge knowledge and capabilities across countries and disciplines.

Summary of the experiences and competences of Husnu

Dr. Hüsnü Gerengi is a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Duzce University in Turkey. He is the representative member of his country in the International Corrosion Council (ICC) since 2015 . His subject expertise and focus is on corrosion and corrosion control, corrosion-resistant materials, corrosion inhibitors – principles and mechanisms. He is the first researcher who used Dynamic Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (DEIS) method in corrosion inhibitor studies. He investigates the long-term evolution of impedance in a corrosion cell on adding an inhibitor. Through this technique, he can quantify and qualify the effectiveness of inhibitors and coatings. Besides corrosion, he has research interests in plastic material technology, rubber material technology and plastic & rubber additives. His dynamic and well-equipped laboratory has currently become a knowledge and research centre for many postdoctoral researchers, doctoral students, masters and bachelors degree students. Corrosion-resistant steel, Al, Cu and brass alloys, Mg-based bioresorbable medical implants and corrosion-resistant construction materials are some of the ongoing topics for research in his laboratory. He has given numerous invited lectures at many national and international conferences and has authored more than 60 SCI scientific papers in high-impact journals. He has seven ongoing patents to his credit based on boron-doped corrosion inhibitors. ( )

Looking for help? Husnu can help you with the following items

In my research laboratory, we can perform all chemical and electrochemical tests in accordance with ASTM standards. we also have SEM-EDS and AFM instruments along with the newly developed DEIS method to determine the instantaneous corrosion mechanism.

Further details

I have conducted 70 SCI indexed scientific studies with national and international research groups. We currently have joint projects with scientists from Poland, Italy and Serbia. I did studies on biodegradable implant materials as a visiting professor at the unuversity of bergamo in Italy. We are still working on this project.
