Nanocomposite Sorbents for Multiple Applications

1st Edition

Yu I. Aristov
September 30, 2019

Looking back at the past few years, it is safe to say that the interest in developing novel materials is booming, and this process has resulted in a reliable base for the technological progress of society. This book presents the concept of the nanotailoring of sorption properties and introduces a...

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...

Nanoimprinting and its Applications

1st Edition

Akihiro Miyauchi
June 17, 2019

Nanoimprinting has grown rapidly since it was proposed in 1995 by Prof. Chou. Now machines, resins, and molds for nanoimprinting are commercially available worldwide. The application fields of nanoimprinting are expanding to not only electronics but also optics, biology, and energy because...

Industrial Biomimetics

1st Edition

Akihiro Miyauchi, Masatsugu Shimomura
June 10, 2019

Biomimetics is an innovative paradigm shift based on biodiversity for sustainability. Biodiversity is not only the result of evolutionary adaption but also the optimized solution of an epic combinatorial chemistry for sustainability, because the diversity has been acquired by biological processes...

Wetting: Theory and Experiments, Two-Volume Set

1st Edition

Eli Ruckenstein, Gersh Berim
December 06, 2018

 Wetting: Theory and Experiments collates papers published by Professor Eli Ruckenstein and his coworkers on the theoretical and experimental investigation of wetting of solid surfaces. It contains six chapters, each of which is preceded by a short introduction. The papers are selected...

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...

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...

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...

Polymer Brushes: Substrates, Technologies, and Properties

1st Edition

Vikas Mittal
March 09, 2018

Polymer Brushes: Substrates, Technologies, and Properties covers various aspects of polymer brush technology, including synthesis, properties, performance, and applications. It presents both experimental details and theoretical insights to enable a better understanding of the brush system. After...

Friction-Induced Vibrations and Self-Organization: Mechanics and Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics of Sliding Contact

1st Edition

Michael Nosonovsky, Vahid Mortazavi
March 09, 2018

Many scientists and engineers do not realize that, under certain conditions, friction can lead to the formation of new structures at the interface, including in situ tribofilms and various patterns. In turn, these structures—usually formed by destabilization of the stationary sliding regime—can...
