Surfactants in Tribology, Volume 6

1st Edition

Girma Biresaw, K.L. Mittal
August 27, 2019

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...

Wetting and Spreading Dynamics, Second Edition

2nd Edition

Victor M. Starov, Manuel G. Velarde
July 09, 2019

Wetting and Spreading Dynamics explains how surface forces acting at the three-phase contact line determine equilibrium, hysteresis contact angles, and other equilibrium and kinetics features of liquids when in contact with solids or with other immiscible liquids. It examines the interaction of...

1st Edition

Reinhard Miller, Libero Liggieri
February 07, 2019

This book describes the most important experimental methods for characterizing liquid interfaces, such as drop profile analysis, bubble pressure and drop volume tensiometry, capillary pressure technique, and oscillating drops and bubbles. It presents practical experimental details as well as the...

Survismeter: Fundamentals, Devices, and Applications

1st Edition

Man Singh, Sunita Singh
January 29, 2019

This book presents the survismeter, a new invention that widely covers and determines PCPs of various molecules and experimentally measures the thermodynamic and kinetic stabilities of nanoemulsions. It unveils how a survismeter can measure surface tension, interfacial tension, wettability,...

Microbial Biosurfactants and their Environmental and Industrial Applications

Wetting Theory

1st Edition

Eli Ruckenstein, Gersh Berim
December 06, 2018

 Wetting Theory discusses the numerous practical applications of wetting, such as preparing self-cleaning surfaces, manufacturing artificial blood vessels, and developing new lubricants and nonadhesive dishes. As part of Wetting: Theory and Experiments, Two-Volume Set, this volume provides new...

Wetting Experiments

1st Edition

Eli Ruckenstein, Gersh Berim
December 06, 2018

 Wetting Experiments contains experimental wetting studies related to biological problems, polymers, and catalysts. An understanding of wetting is important for numerous practical applications, such as preparing self-cleaning surfaces, manufacturing artificial blood vessels, and developing new...

Functional Nanostructured Membranes

1st Edition

Enrico Drioli, Lidietta Giorno, Annarosa Gugliuzza
December 03, 2018

A membrane is considered the heart of every separation process because it is developed as a nanostructured/nanofunctionalized thin barrier that controls the exchange between two phases, not only by external forces and under the effect of fluid properties, but also through the intrinsic...

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...
