  • Deals with issues that are most important with respect to the current developments in chemistry and physics and the formulation of adequate models related to tribology
  • Describes key problems in physics and chemistry, focusing on the background techniques and results and their interpretations
  • Presents a detailed yet lucid discussion on tribocatalysis, which will become more and more important in tribochemistry in the future, with special reference to the decrease in activation energy


This book focuses on the triboemission of low-energy electrons from the freshly generated surface. These electrons play the most crucial role in the chemical reactions at the tribological interface. New models and TIP (thermodymanics of irreversible processes) describe in detail the behavior of emitted electrons which lower the activation energy of the chemical reactions. This book also highlights tribocatalysis phenomena as examples of the lowering of the activation energy. A book titled Tribocatalysis has never been published before this.
