Advances in liquid crystal lubrication
- 化学化工－已发表论文 
The advances in liquid crystal lubrication and liquid crystals as lubrication additives were reviewed in this paper. Recent theoretical studies and application results were discussed for two different kinds of liquid crystals-lyotropic liquid crystals and thermotropic liquid crystals. Their antifriction and antiwear mechanisms under different experimental conditions were illustrated. The lubrication functions of adding liquid crystals as lubrication additives into some regular greases and synthetic oils were commented.
