Five experiments investigated whether perceptual patterning afforded by imposing a recurrent stress pattern on auditorially presented lists has a positive effect on list recall. The experiments also addressed whether the recall advantage reflected the salience that the stress pattern created for certain items or whether the recall advantage arose from the(More)
As the lubrication industry shifts to a more environmentally responsible direction, the development of sustainable and renewable lubricants derived from bio-based feedstock has become increasingly more important. Presented, is a new class of “greener” lubricants, environmentally benign room temperature ionic liquids that represent an alternative to(More)
In the present investigation, experiments were conducted using a pin-on-disk apparatus to study the tribological performance of various green liquid lubricants. More specifically, various green liquid lubricants, such as: avocado, canola (rapeseed), corn, olive, peanut, safflower, sesame, and vegetable oil are considered. In addition, tribological(More)
Historically, biolubricants have evolved from natural oils derived from vegetables to currently used bio-based synthetic room temperature ionic liquids (ILs) that represent a possible next step in biolubricant technology. Natural oils have been used since antiquity due to their high lubricity. As industrial applications become more complex, a desire for(More)
Environmentally friendly bio-based lubricants are gaining attention within the lubrication industry as an alternative to petroleum-based lubricants. In the present investigation, a pin-on-disk apparatus was used to study the effect of surface roughness on the tribological performance of bio-based lubricants containing particulate additives. In the(More)
Over the last several decades, the lubrication industry has been striving to bring environmentally friendly biobased lubricants, known as biolubricants, to prominence. With an estimated 50% of all lubricants entering the environment, and with much of these being composed of non-biodegradable mineral oils, biolubricants have begun to experience a resurgence.(More)
Recently, the use of green lubricants has grown in the lubrication industry due to environmental concerns and increasingly more stringent government regulations to curb the use of petroleum-based lubricants. The present investigation seeks to determine alternatives to the toxic petroleum-based lubricants by developing green lubricants. In this study,(More)
Natural oils have been known to be viable lubricants since the emergence of lubrication and have regained their prominence due to new ecofriendly initiatives. Recently, environmentally benign ionic liquids (IL) have been proposed as a new class of green lubricants. In this study, the effects of phosphoniumand imidazolium-based ILs as additives in natural(More)
