Tribological Performance of Room-Temperature Ionic Liquids as Lubricant
The tribological performance of room-temperature ionic liquid of alkylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate was evaluated using an Optimol SRV oscillating friction and wear tester in air and a CZM vacuumExpand
Biomimic from the superhydrophobic plant leaves in nature: Binary structure and unitary structure
The present study demonstrates that there are two main type kinds of surface structures in the natural plant leaves with superhydrophobicity, one is the micro-and nanostruture and the other is micro-line structure. Expand
Superhydrophobic surfaces: from natural to biomimetic to functional.
This feature article highlights some of the recent advances in the last four years, including the various smart routes to construct rough surfaces, and a lot of chemical modifications which lead to superhydrophobicity. Expand
Biomimetic super-lyophobic and super-lyophilic materials applied for oil/water separation: a new strategy beyond nature.
It is expected that special wettability stimulated oil/water separation materials can achieve industrial scale production and be put into use for oil spills and industrial oily wastewater treatment in the near future. Expand
Preparation and self-assembly of carboxylic acid-functionalized silica.
A simple method for the fabrication of silica nanoparticle film based on the covalent-bonding interaction between carboxylic acid-functionalized silica nanoparticles (SiO(2)-COOH) andExpand
Tribological performance of phosphonium based ionic liquids for an aluminum-on-steel system and opinions on lubrication mechanism
Abstract A series of asymmetrical tetraalkylphosphonium ionic liquids were synthesized and evaluated as a new kind of lubricant for the contacts of steel/Al using an Optimol SRV oscillating frictionExpand
Effect of the functional groups in ionic liquid molecules on the friction and wear behavior of aluminum alloy in lubricated aluminum-on-steel contact
Abstract Four imidazolium-based room temperature ionic liquids containing phosphonyl functional groups, i.e. 1-(3′- O , O -diethylphosphonyl- n -propyl)-3-alkylimidazolium tetrafluoroborates andExpand
Friction and wear behaviors of ionic liquid of alkylimidazolium hexafluorophosphates as lubricants for steel/steel contact
Abstract Ionic liquids of the alkylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate type were prepared and evaluated as lubricants for the contact of steel/steel. Their tribological properties of the synthetic ionicExpand
