Initially TMDs were applied as burnished or sputtered coatings in dry friction regime ; however, after the pioneering synthesis of TMDs as inorganic fullerene-like nanoparticles , it became possible to make use of their potential as a lubricant additive
. Shortly after, a number of researchers showed the great tribological potential of nanolubricants containing TMD nanoparticles and other morphologies including nanotubes [4-6].
In the field of lubrication, zinc dialkyldithiophosphate (ZDDP) has been widely utilized as a multifunctional lubricant additive
exhibiting good antiwear and antioxidative properties in engine oils [1-5].

The researchers will also draw on the latest lubricant additive
technology using, as far as possible, formulations that do not contain any sulphur or phosphorus, which may be further restricted in future.
engineering research consultant Ricardo plc is launching a consortium of automakers, Tier 1 suppliers, oil and lubricant additive
manufacturers, and government agencies to address lubrication issues.
Lubricant failure is often attributed to contamination when the true cause is an improper lubricant additive
Contributors include equipment manufacturers, end users, lubricant producers, lubricant additive
suppliers, test equipment manufacturers, and standard test method developers.
