Abstract Lubrication is essential in increasing a mechanical component's service duration and minimizing wear. Though synthetic and petrol-based oils are generally used in lubricants today, natural oils which are environment-friendly, biologically decomposable, and whose waste does not give harm to the environment have also begun to be used as lubricants recently thanks to an increasing awareness of the environment. In the present study, vegetable-oil based canola oil and boric acid were… Expand
Investigation of tribological mechanisms of a boron additive in lubricants and fuel enhancer
