Tribology is an interdisciplinary area that studies the reduction of friction between moving parts combining chemistry, physics and engineering disciplines. Lubricants are typically substances used to reduce friction. This book contains two sections: the first section examines the chemistry of lubricants and additives, while the second section looks at the lubrication of different types of materials.
