Chyhyrynets Helen E. – Head of Department of Physical Chemistry, PhD, Professor

Teaches subjects: “Physical Chemistry”, “Surface effects and dispersion systems

General research interests: protecting metals from corrosion, physical and chemical processes occurring on the surface of the metal.

Main areas of research:

  • Investigation of the influence as a surface preparation of metal-carbon and corrosion resistant pipes used in power generation, the stability of the total, Pitting corrosion and stress corrosion cracking. Problems of durability.
  • Investigation of methods for the preparation of metal surfaces, including  the product of atmospheric corrosion before painting. Development of fillers (Rust) from industrial wastes of plant origin (grape seed, peach, apricot, walnut shell, etc..) for the production of environmentally friendly anti-corrosion coatings.
  • Investigation of thin-film coatings for temporary protection of metal from atmospheric corrosion.
  • Investigation of volatile atmospheric corrosion inhibitors for temporary surface protection of metal.
