Effectiveness of micellar copper oxide and zinc
phosphates as antiwear additives in mineral
oil has been investigated as a function of their
disintegration in tribochemical processes. The
use of copper tribofilm coating can provide
reasonable very low wear and friction
coefficient. The mechanism of wear reduction
by micellar copper oxide is based on the
formation of metallic copper durable film on
the rubbing steel surface during following
tribochemical reaction: Cu2+ + 2etribo ->
Cu0. This phenomen is named selective
transfer. As an effect of the given above
reaction, decrease in the concentration of
copper and of the other metals, e.g., iron, in
oil formulation is observed. Other process
responsible for formation of metallic copper is
proposed: 2Fe+2 (or Fe0) + 3CuO +
2H2O -> Fe2O3 + 3 Cu0 + 4H+.
Zinc phosphates as micellar [Zn(PO3)2] hardcore
reverse micelles (RMs) are directly
introduced in the sliding contact and undergo
physicochemical changes during the film
build-up. Consequently, tribochemical
reaction with zinc phosphate RMs and iron
oxide, through friction-induced cross-linking
processes, takes place: [Zn(PO3)2l(RMs) +
2FeO -> Fe2Zn(PO4)2
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
