Introduction:

Dr Tan Yong Teck is a corrosion scientist specialising in using electrochemical techniques and processes for research in corrosion and corrosion protection. He received his PhD from National University of Singapore (NUS) Graduate School for Integrative Sciences and Engineering and his Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Materials Science and Engineering from NUS. His research aims to help local industries reduce costs and improve productivity by applying appropriate corrosion protection to counter corrosion failure.

 

Research Interest:

  • Electrochemical techniques for corrosion research

  • Localised corrosion of passive metals

  • Corrosion inhibitors

  • Coatings for corrosion protection

  • Anodising

  • Electroless and electrolytic deposition
