Main research achievements

Arjan Mol obtained his MSc-degree at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering of the Delft University of Technology (DUT) in 1996. After this, he obtained his PhD-degree in 2000 at the Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) Department of the DUT on the study of the effects of microstructural variations in aluminium alloy surfaces on filiform corrosion properties. He continued his career as a project- and team leader ‘Structural lifetime of building and civil engineering structures’ for 6 years at the Dutch Applied Research Organisation TNO.

As from 2006 Arjan Mol returned to DUT-MSE and now is Full Professor ‘Corrosion Technology and Electrochemistry’. Furthermore he is Honorary Professor at the University of Science and Technology USTB Beijing since 2017.

Besides, Arjan Mol is the President (2019-2020) of the European Federation of Corrosion (EFC – .The EFC is the biggest corrosion organisation in Europe and one of the largest in the world, representing over 38 national corrosion, engineering and materials societies with members from 25 European countries and an increasing number of international members outside of Europe. Furthermore, he is Member of the International Scientific Committee as well as Co-Chairman of the yearly European Corrosion Conference Eurocorr (, typically attracting around 1200-1500 participants from all over the globe. Since 2010 Arjan Mol is also the Dutch Representative Member of the International Corrosion Council ICC (

Currently, he is Editor-in-Chief of Elsevier’s “Corrosion Science” and Member of the Editorial Boards of “Corrosion Engineering, Science and Technology”, “Transactions of the Institute of Metal Finishing” and “Materials and Corrosion”.

Mol has published over 150 Web of Science listed papers in international peer refereed scientific journals, 13 book chapters, 1 book as co-editor and over 100 international conference proceeding papers.
