Man lubricates generally with oil. Nature lubricates completely with water. natural water is a terrible lubricant, however the addition of proteins, specifically glycoproteins, can adjust surfaces to lead them to way more lubricating at gradual speeds. figuring out how nature does this, and the actual constructions concerned, is not just very important for the knowledge of illnesses reminiscent of osteoarthritis, but in addition crucial for the profitable software of articulating implants, reminiscent of hips and knees, in addition to the improvement of scientific units similar to catheters and phone lenses. a bunch of significant purposes of water-based lubrication are already in position within the own care and nutrition industries, and extra commercial purposes of water-based lubrication may have an important optimistic influence at the environment.

This ebook is the 1st of its variety. It brings jointly the newest learn in organic and biomimetic, water-based lubrication and is authored through the world's specialists within the field.
