Description / Abstract:

Sets the stage for the development of new advanced polymeric materials and applications Building a deeper understanding of the surface properties, functionality, contact, and interactions of polymers has become critical for the development of new advanced polymer materials and novel applications. In order to support new research, this book presents our current understanding of adhesion, friction, and lubrication in polymeric and biomacromolecular systems at molecular, nano, and micro scales. Moreover, the authors demonstrate how a better understanding of the adhesion, scratch, wear, and lubrication properties of polymers can lead to new applications in diverse areas such as biomedical research and automotive engineering. Polymer Adhesion, Friction, and Lubrication sets forth a variety of experimental and theoretical methods such as the use of atomic force microscopy and surface forces apparatus to analyze nanotribology. The book's sixteen chapters also explore topics such as: Polymer thin films and brushes Nanoparticles Rubber and tire technology Synovial joint lubrication Adhesion in paper products Electrorheological fluids All of the book's chapters have been contributed by leading international experts and pioneers in the field. Their contributions reflect not only the latest published findings, but also their own firsthand experience studying the adhesion, friction, and lubrication properties of polymers and then leveraging this knowledge to develop new applications. Readers will find references at the end of each chapter in order to explore individual topics in greater depth. Polymer Adhesion, Friction, and Lubrication is recommended for students and professionals in polymer science and engineering, materials science, colloid and interface science, nanotechnology, bioengineering, and chemical engineering.
