PhD student

Faculty of Chemistry, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland

October 2013 - October 2017

Doctoral thesis: Functionalised gemini surfactants as corrosion inhibitors (synthesis, aggregation behaviour, biodegradation, aquatic toxicity and corrosion inhibition efficiency of the gemini surfactants)

Supervisor: Prof. Bogumił Brycki

 

Trainee, Erasmus + Programme

School of Materials, University of Manchester, Manchester, United Kingdom

April 2016 – August 2016

Project: Gemini surfactants as corrosion inhibitors of stainless steel. The corrosion inhibition efficiency was determined using potentiodynamic polarisation and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS).
