Dr. Alec Groysman
I have dealt with corrosion since 1976 when I graduated from the Chemico-Technological University named after Mendeleev in Moscow.
Use of materials resistant to corrosion under different conditions, corrosion monitoring, anti-corrosion measures and failure analysis in industry is what I have been doing for many years.
I also teach the subject of corrosion, chemical thermodynamics and kinetics, materials and standards in oil and gas engineering in universities and colleges in Israel and abroad.
I am also an active promoter of science to the general public.
My Mission is to show that corrosion is not a nasty phenomenon and everyone can enjoy studying and dealing with it, therefore I find connecting corrosion with humanitarian aspects of life (history, philosophy, art including literature, poetry and music) fundamental issue for educational process

Human chemistry | Engineering and scientific education
In his 2011 conference presentation “Use of Art Media in Engineering and Scientific Education”, Groysman cites the human chemistry work of Johann Goethe and Libb Thims, among others; and discusses how not only is their "two cultures" (as professed by Charles Snow) but more likely "three cultures".
“Dobereiner helped in refining Russian platinum, discovered catalysis, and reported his work to Goethe. We can only suspect that they both discussed this and that Dobereiner read the tragedy Faust and the novella Elective Affinities. The latter work of art gave impulse to a new scientific field named 'human chemistry'.
