Functional Nanostructured Membranes

1st Edition

Enrico Drioli, Lidietta Giorno, Annarosa Gugliuzza
October 31, 2018

This book compiles cutting-edge research in membrane science, nanomaterials, and nanotechnologies, mainly from interdisciplinary research groups at the Institute on Membrane Technology, National Research Council (IMT-CNR), Italy, working on membrane design, membrane process engineering, and...

Liquid Marbles: Formation, Characterization, and Applications

1st Edition

Andrew T. Tyowua
October 24, 2018

Certain small solid particles are surface-active at fluid interfaces and thus are able to stabilize materials previously considered impossible to stabilize in their absence. Liquid marbles, particle-coated non-sticking liquid droplets, represent one of these materials. Preparation of liquid marbles...

Aqueous Phase Adsorption: Theory, Simulations and Experiments

1st Edition

Jayant K Singh, Nishith Verma
October 09, 2018

This book covers theoretical aspects of adsorption, followed by an introduction to molecular simulations and other numerical techniques that have become extremely useful as an engineering tool in recent times to understand the interplay of different mechanistic steps of adsorption. Further, the...

Friction, Wear, Lubrication: A Textbook in Tribology, Second Edition

2nd Edition

Kenneth C Ludema, Layo Ajayi
October 02, 2018

The second edition of a bestseller, this book introduces tribology in a way that builds students’ knowledge and understanding. It includes expanded information on topics such as surface characterization as well as recent advances in the field. The book provides additional descriptions of common...

Foam Films and Foams: Fundamentals and Applications

1st Edition

Dotchi Exerowa, Georgi Gochev, Dimo Platikanov, Libero Liggieri, Reinhard Miller
July 19, 2018

This book describes in detail the scientific philosophy of the formation and stabilization-destabilization of foams. It presents all hierarchical steps of a foam, starting from the properties of adsorption layers formed by foaming agents, discussing the properties of foam films as the building...

1st Edition

Vijay Kumar Thakur, Manju Kumari Thakur
January 24, 2018

Carbon-based nanomaterials are rapidly emerging as one of the most fascinating materials in the twenty-first century. Chemical Functionalization of Carbon Nanomaterials: Chemistry and Applications provides a thorough examination of carbon nanomaterials, including their variants and how they can be...

Nanoscience: Colloidal and Interfacial Aspects

1st Edition

Victor M. Starov
December 14, 2017

The common perception is that nanoscience is something entirely new, that it sprung forth whole and fully formed like some mythological deity. But the truth is that like all things scientific, nanoscience is the natural result of the long evolution of scientific inquiry. Following a historical...

The Molecular Theory of Adsorption in Porous Solids

1st Edition

Yu. K. Tovbin
October 13, 2017

In the adsorption phenomenon the substances from the external environment the gas or liquid are absorbed by a solid surface (adsorbent). Adsorption is used to separate gaseous and liquid mixtures, for drying and purification of gases and liquids. This reference broadly explores the calculation of...

Bioinspired Superhydrophobic Surfaces: Advances and Applications with Metallic and Inorganic Materials

1st Edition

Frédéric Guittard, Thierry Darmanin
October 06, 2017

Materials with superhydrophobic or related properties are one of the most studied subjects from a theoretical point of view and also for the large range of possible applications, for example, anticorrosion, antibacteria, optical devices, and sensors. The study of natural species with special...

Surfactants in Tribology, Volume 5

1st Edition

Girma Biresaw, K.L. Mittal
September 20, 2017

Surfactants play a critical role in Tribology controlling friction, wear, and lubricant properties such as emulsification, demulsification, bioresistance, oxidation resistance, rust prevention and corrosion resistance. This is a critical topic for new materials and devices particularly those built...
