ICMT Research Topping the Charts

A key metric in how peer reviewed research is received is to measure how often published papers have been downloaded from scientific journals. The Institute is delighted to report a strong showing in 2019, featuring two of the top five most accessed papers in the NACE journal CORROSION. Ranked #1 was "Adsorption Behavior of Organic Corrosion Inhibitors on Metal Surfaces - Some New Insights from Molecular Simulations" (by Sumit Sharma, Xueying Ko, Yathish Kurapati, Himanshu Singh, and Srdjan Nesic). Occupying the #5 slot, and further demonstrating the diversity of research conducted within ICMT, was "Investigation of Pitting Corrosion Initiation and Propagation of a Type 316L Stainless Steel Manufactured by the Direct Metal Laser Sintering Process" (by Claudia Prieto, Marc Singer, Timothy Cyders, and David Young). Our recently recruited post-doctoral researcher Maryam Eslami occupies the #9 position with her paper "Electropolymerization and Possible Corrosion Protection Effect of Polypyrrole Coatings on AA1050 (UNS A91050) in NaCl Solutions" relating to her PhD research at the University of Trento.

Furthermore, recognition of ICMT affiliated research extends to other journals. Prof. Tingyue Gu's pioneering papers relating to microbiologically influenced corrosion constitute three of the twenty-five most downloaded papers in Corrosion Science since 2017, specifically "Effects of Biogenic H2S on the Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion of C1018 Carbon Steel by Sulfate Reducing Desulfovibrio vulgaris Biofilm" (by Ru Jia, Jie Long Tan, Peng Jin, Daniel John Blackwood, Dake Xu, and Tingyue Gu), "The Corrosion Behavior and Mechanism of Carbon Steel Induced by Extracellular Polymeric Substances of Iron-oxidizing Bacteria" (by Hongwei Liu, Tingyue Gu, Muhammad Asif, Guoan Zhang, and Hongfang Liu), and "Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion of C1018 Carbon Steel by Nitrate Reducing Pseudomonas aeruginosa Biofilm under Organic Carbon Starvation" (by Ru Jia, Dongqing Yang, Jin Xu, Dake Xu, and Tingyue Gu). Prof. Gu also has one of the most cited articles in the journal Biochemistry since 2017, "Electron Transfer Mediators Accelerated the Microbiologically Influence Corrosion Against Carbon Steel by Nitrate Reducing Pseudomonas aeruginosa Biofilm" (by Ru Jia, Dongqing Yang, Dake Xu, and Tingyue Gu).
