Frictional properties of surfactant-coated rod-shaped nanoparticles in dry and humid dodecane.

Abstract

We have investigated the effects of humidity (water content or activity from 0 to approximately 0.98) on the frictional properties of surfactant-coated ZnS nanoparticles of various shapes, specifically, nanorods and nanowires, dispersed in an organic solvent (dodecane). The friction coefficients were found to be sensitive to even trace amounts of water… (More)
