Lubrication is a diverse discipline ranging from lubrication concepts in industrial and automotive engineering, solid-state and gas lubrication, micro & nanolubrication phenomena, to lubrication in biological systems. To investigate these areas the scope of the journal encourages fundamental and application-based studies on:
Synthesis, chemistry and the broader development of high-performing and environmentally adapted lubricants and additives.
State of the art analytical tools and characterisation of lubricants, lubricated surfaces and interfaces.
Solid lubricants, self-lubricating coatings and composites, lubricating nanoparticles.
Green-lubrication technology and lubricants.
Tribochemistry and tribocorrosion of environment- and lubricant-interface interactions.
Modelling of lubrication mechanisms and interface phenomena on different scales: from atomic and molecular to mezzo and structural.
Modelling hydrodynamic and thin film lubrication.
All lubrication related aspects of nanotribology.
Surface-lubricant interface interactions and phenomena: wetting, adhesion and adsorption.
Bio-lubrication, bio-lubricants and lubricated biological systems.
Other novel and cutting-edge aspects of lubrication in all lubrication regimes.
