Summary of the experiences and competences of Husnu
Husnu Gerengi 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.
Dr Hüsnü Gerengi is a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Duzce University in Turkey. He is one of the representative members of Turkey in the International Corrosion Council (ICC) since 2015.
He worked on biodegradable implants as a visiting professor at Bergamo University, Italy from September 2020 to 2022.
His subject expertise and focus are on corrosion, corrosion control, corrosion-resistant materials and corrosion inhibitors – principles and mechanisms. He is the first researcher who used the Dynamic Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (DEIS) method in corrosion inhibitor studies. He investigates the long-term evolution of impedance in a corrosion cell by 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 and rubber material technology, also plastic and rubber additives. His dynamic and well-equipped laboratory has currently become a knowledge and research centre for many postdoctoral researchers, doctoral students, master’s and bachelor’s 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 as well as he 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.
