NANOMATERIALS IN LUBRICANTS
 
The present communication overviews the use of various classes of nanomaterials in lubricant formulations. The following classes of nanomaterials are considered: fullerenes, nanodiamonds, fumed silica, clays, ultradispersed boric acid and PTFE. Current advances in using nanomaterials in engine oils, industrial lubricants and greases are discussed. Results of numerous studies combined with formulation experience of the authors conclusively suggest that nanomaterials, indeed, have potential for enhancing certain lubricant properties, yet there is a long way to go before balanced formulations are developed.
 
Key words: nanomaterials, lubricants, fullerenes, nanodiamonds, fumed silica, clays, ultradispersed boric acid, ultradispersed PTFE.
