LUBMAT 2012 was held in Bilbao, from 6–8 June 2012 in the Euskalduna Palace. LUBMAT was born in 2006, as a collaboration agreement between Jost Institute for Tribotechnology in UK and IK4-TEKNIKER in Eibar, Spain.
The structural impact of ionic liquids was systematically investigated by assessing their behaviour as lubricant additives in two different biodegradable esters (refined rapeseed oil and synthetic ester).
A tribological investigation of two ionic liquids (ILs) that could be used as potential lubricants for vacuum or space applications is presented.
The use of carbon-based coatings (hydrogenated and non-hydrogenated DLC, doped and alloyed-DLC) is of wide interest due to its applications in mechanical components submitted to friction and wear including sliding parts in automotive engines.
In this work, an analytical tri-dimensional eccentricity model of a rod lip seal is presented. In the specific, a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) rod lip seal was considered.
Amperometric magnetoimmunoassay for the direct detection of tumor necrosis factor alpha biomarker in human serum
An amperometric immunoassay for the determination of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα) protein biomarker in human serum based on the use of magnetic microbeads (MBs) and disposable screen-printed carbon electrodes (SPCEs) has been developed.
