Graphene Materials Book Review:

Graphene is, basically, a single atomic layer of graphite, an abundant mineral that is an allotrope of carbon that is made up of very tightly bonded carbon atoms organized into a hexagonal lattice. What makes graphene so special is its sp2 hybridization and very thin atomic thickness (of 0.345 Nm). These properties are what enable graphene to break so many records in terms of strength, electricity, and heat conduction (as well as many others). This book gathers valuable information about the surface chemistry of graphene, some of its properties (electrical, mechanical, etc.), and many of its modifications that can be taken into account.

Frictional Anisotropy of Graphene and Graphene Based Materials Book Review:

Graphene and graphene based materials have great potential for their use in new technological applications. Here, we investigate the tribological properties of graphene, graphite, and graphene fluoride. We extensively studied these materials experimentally by using Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and theoretically by performing Molecular Dynamics Simulations (MDS). Experimental studies were based on rotational techniques to determine the directional dependence of the orthotropic sliding friction using Trace-Minus-Retrace (TMR) analysis of the height and lateral profiles. The MDS were focused on differences in sliding friction on the interior and at the edges of graphene with a fixed temperature for the 3Å and 4Å tip - surface separations. By performing both methods, experimental measurements, and atomistic simulations, the friction coefficients of graphene, graphene fluoride, and graphite were found to be in the range of 10−3 to 10−1. We found that atomic tip - surface interactions have an important effect on friction.

Discusses the aim of the study was to prepare PTFE / graphene nanocomposites and examine the influence of the graphene nanoplatelets on the tribological and gas barrier properties of the PTFE / graphene nanocomposite seals. To evaluate the graphene / PTFE nanocomposites, the following aspects were investigated: 1. The preparation method of graphene filled PTFE nanocomposites that entailed the dispersion of the graphene nanoplatelets with the PTFE powder resin, the influence of the pre-forming pressure during cold compaction on the PTFE / graphene powders and the processing (free-sintering) of the pre-formed billets. 2. The surface modification of graphene via oxyfluorination to improve the interaction between the graphene and the modified PTFE matrix. 3. The wear resistance and coefficient of friction of the sintered graphene- and oxyfluorinated graphene-filled PTFE nanocomposite discs along with the tribo-chemical properties. 4.

Nanolubricants Book Review:

The technology involved in lubrication by nanoparticles is a rapidly developing scientific area and one that has been watched with interest for the past ten years. Nanolubrication offers a solution to many problems associated with traditional lubricants that contain sulphur and phosphorus; and though for some time the production of nanoparticles was restricted by the technologies available, today synthesis methods have been improved to such a level that it is possible to produce large quantities relatively cheaply and efficiently. Nanolubricants develops a new concept of lubrication, based on these nanoparticles, and along with the authors’ own research it synthesises the information available on the topic of nanolubrication from existing literature and presents it in a concise form. Describes the many advantages and potential applications of nanotechnology in the tribological field. Offers a full review of the state-of-the-art as well as much original research that is yet unpublished. Includes sections on boundary lubrication by colloïdal systems, nanolubricants made of metal dichalcogenides, carbon-based nanolubricants, overbased detergent salts, nanolubricants made of metals and boron-based solid nanolubricants and lubrication additives. Authored by highly regarded experts in the field with contributions from leading international academics. Nanolubricants will appeal to postgraduate students, academics and researchers in mechanical engineering, chemical engineering and materials science. It should also be of interest to practising engineers with petroleum companies and mechanical manufacturers.

Self Lubricating Composites Book Review:

In most tribological applications, liquid or grease based lubricants are used to facilitate the relative motion of solid bodies to minimize friction and wear between interacting surfaces. The challenges for liquid lubricants arise in extreme environmental conditions, such as very high or low temperatures, vacuum, radiation, and extreme contact pressure. At these conditions, solid lubricants may be the alternative choice which can help to decrease friction and wear without incorporating liquid lubricants. Challenges with solid lubricants are to maintain a continuous supply of solid lubricants on the contact surfaces to act as lubricous layer between two sliding surfaces. Such a continuous supply of solid lubricant is more easily maintained in the case of liquid lubricants when compared to solid lubricants. The most innovative development to ensure a continuous supply of solid lubricant to the contact surface during sliding is to introduce solid lubricant as reinforcement into the matrix of one of the sliding components. Composite materials are engineered or naturally occurring materials which contain two or more distinct constituents with significantly different chemical, physical and mechanical properties. Composites consist of reinforcement and matrix (metal, polymer and ceramics). Among various reinforcements, recent emerging material, solid lubricant, is found to have many favorable attributes such as good self-lubricant property. Self‐lubrication is the ability of material to transfer embedded solid lubricants to the contact surface to decrease wear rate and friction in the absence of an external lubricant. Self-lubricating metal matrix composites (SLMMCs) are an important category of engineering materials that are increasingly replacing a number of conventional materials in the automotive, aerospace, and marine industries due to superior tribological properties. In SLMMCs, solid lubricant materials including carbonous materials, molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), and hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) are embedded into the metal matrices as reinforcements to manufacture a novel material with attractive self-lubricating properties. Several studies have been investigated the tribological properties of self-lubricating materials. This book fills that gap to have a reference book about self-lubricating materials and their properties to help scientists, engineers, and industries. This book will try to discuss technically about self-lubricating materials and their properties and the applications for industries. The chapters will be written by authoritative expertise in the field. Additionally, this book will demonstrate fundamental study and most advanced innovations in self-lubricating materials as regards to friction and wear. The chapters also include tribological properties of composites and coatings and some practical application of self-lubricating materials.
