Read e-book online Surfactants in Tribology, Volume 2 PDF

By Girma Biresaw,K.L. Mittal

The most advantageous symposium on Surfactants in Tribology, held in Seoul in 2006, used to be an drastically profitable occasion that generated a excessive point of curiosity within the subject, resulting in the ebook of the 1st quantity during this sequence in 2008. The large reaction was once echoed on the follow-up symposium in Berlin that very same 12 months, and best researchers, lots of whom participated within the moment occasion, have been invited to put up chapters for Surfactants in Tribology, quantity . Reflecting the cumulative knowledge of a contingent of researchers, this article explores all-new subject matters severe to the way forward for tribology.



Topics mentioned during this moment quantity include:





  • Properties of silane, thio, phthalocyanine and phospholipid movies, membranes, grafts, and SAMs on gold, silica, and graphite substrates

  • Water/oil emulsions used as oil-well drilling fluids

  • Properties of prepared surfactant assemblies and aqueous ideas of alkyl polyglucosides

  • Surfactants as demulsifiers in more desirable crude oil creation from previous wells

  • Oil/water emulsions with biobased surfactants

  • The synthesis of novel biobased materials

  • Properties of biobased lubricants and surfactants

  • Modeling and statistical predictive equipment within the improvement of biobased lubricants

  • The basics of floor chemistry at tribological interfaces

  • The position of floor technological know-how in magnetic recording tribology

  • Antiwear and friction modifier compounds for car applications

  • Surfactants as antimicrobial brokers in lubricants



Tribological phenomena are of vital significance in a number of industries starting from easy items to high-tech units. This quantity and its predecessor mirror the sage contributions of a cadre of specialists who record on present percentages and destiny power for harnessing surfactants to manage tribological behavior.
