From 1880, he worked in Donbass. On coming back to St. Petersburg (1884) he became a member of the Department of Science of the Naval Technical Committee. In 1889, he was appointed professor of the Mikhailovskaya Artillery Academy. In 1917, he traveled to Yalta for treatment, and died there. Chernov was the founder of Russian physical metallurgy and author of the theory of thermal treatment of steel. He discovered the so-called critical points in phase transformation of steel ("Chernov points"). A street in Nevsky District was named after Chernov in 1952 (former Berdovskaya Street).
