IV International Conference on Tribochemistry

Cracow, Poland

3 - 5 October 2005

 

Invited speakers


Scope

The IV International Conference on Tribochemistry will be a continuation of International Symposia on Tribochemistry, meetings of the specialists in the field on tribochemistry that have been organized in Poland every four years since 1993. The previous three Symposia, held in Lodz, Janowice and Cracow, created an opportunity for stimulating discussions on physicochemical phenomena and chemical reactions in frictional contacts. 

We invite presentations concerning the following topics:  

  • tribochemistry of lubricating base oils and model base fluids

  • mechanisms of additives' action under boundary lubrication conditions

  • physical and physicochemical phenomena in rubbing contacts

  • tribopolymerisation related research

  • tribochemistry of ceramics and other technologically advanced materials

  • micro/nanotribology

  • new analytical techniques applied in tribochemistry

  • tribophysics  

  • tribochemistry of nanoparticles and nanocomposites

  • tribology of ultra thin films and coatings (LB, SAMs, etc.)

  • action mechanisms of fuel lubricity additives

  • other aspects of tribochemistry

 

The official conference language will be English.
