This third volume in a new series offers information on advances in the tribological aspects of cutting edge areas in micro and nanodevices including MEMS, NEMS, biosurfactants, biolubricants, and bioemulsions. Written by a global team of established and respected authors, it serves as a reference for scientists and engineers developing advanced materials and devices where nanoscale understanding of the tribiological properties is critical. This third edition offers updated coverage of biosurfactants, biolubricants, and bioemusions, with an emphasis on green solutions. New topics include the superlubricity of fullerness, nanotribology of SAMs, and the effect of surface texturing on tribological phenomena, among many others.
