9780470916278: Polymer Adhesion, Friction, and Lubrication

Specifically dedicated to polymer and biopolymer systems, Polymer Adhesion, Friction, and Lubrication guides readers to the scratch, wear, and lubrication properties of polymers and the engineering applications, from biomedical research to automotive engineering. Author Hongbo Zeng details different experimental and theoretical methods used to probe static and dynamic properties of polymer materials and biomacromolecular systems. Topics include the use of atomic force microscopy (AFM) to analyze nanotribology, polymer thin films and brushes, nanoparticles, rubber and tire technology, synovial joint lubrication, adhesion in paper products, bioMEMS, and electrorheological fluids.

From the Back Cover:

Sets the stage for the development of new advanced polymeric materials and applications

Building a deeper understanding of the surface properties, functionality, contact, and interactions of polymers has become critical for the development of new advanced polymer materials and novel applications. In order to support new research, this book presents our current understanding of adhesion, friction, and lubrication in polymeric and biomacromolecular systems at molecular, nano, and micro scales. Moreover, the authors demonstrate how a better understanding of the adhesion, scratch, wear, and lubrication properties of polymers can lead to new applications in diverse areas such as biomedical research and automotive engineering.

Polymer Adhesion, Friction, and Lubrication sets forth a variety of experimental and theoretical methods such as the use of atomic force microscopy and surface forces apparatus to analyze nanotribology. The book's sixteen chapters also explore topics such as:

  • Polymer thin films and brushes
  • Nanoparticles
  • Rubber and tire technology
  • Synovial joint lubrication
  • Adhesion in paper products
  • Electrorheological fluids

All of the book's chapters have been contributed by leading international experts and pioneers in the field. Their contributions reflect not only the latest published findings, but also their own firsthand experience studying the adhesion, friction, and lubrication properties of polymers and then leveraging this knowledge to develop new applications. Readers will find references at the end of each chapter in order to explore individual topics in greater depth.

Polymer Adhesion, Friction, and Lubrication is recommended for students and professionals in polymer science and engineering, materials science, colloid and interface science, nanotechnology, bioengineering, and chemical engineering.

About the Author:

HONGBO ZENG, PHD, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Alberta. Dr. Zeng leads a research group that investigates various areas of surface and colloid science, and nanotechnology, with a special focus on the intermolecular and surface forces in polymer materials, complex fluids, biological systems, oils, and minerals. In addition, he works on the development of advanced functional materials that provide novel engineering and biomedical applications.
