An exhaustive reference guide on the tribology of graphene-based materials, this book starts by looking at the selection of the proper graphene-based material, then segues into topics such as choosing a deposition method, control of its structure and properties, and concludes by outlining the most effective working conditions and applications. The latest developments in theoretical simulations of graphene friction, preparation methods, and effective applications are all reviewed, as is how various graphene coatings can be successfully employed to decrease friction and wear in nano-, micro-, and macro-mechanical applications.

Key Features

  • Synthesizes the broad current research in tribological applications of graphene all in one place
  • Covers theoretical simulations and preparation methods, including insight on how to put them into practice, allowing for quicker and more effective selection of graphene-based material
  • Provides a broader perspective by discussing both graphene-based composites and additives


Academic researchers specializing in tribology and graphene-based materials; upper undergrad and graduate students; field engineers adapting modern advances into new products
