On prime movers, macro and micro
Diatoms also have remarkable lubricant properties. They never show signs of wear, and they move with great ease. The study of diatoms in relation to lubrication is referred to as diatom bionanotribology. Researchers in this field, like pioneer Ille Gebeshuber at the University of Technology Vienna and the Austrian Center of Competence for Tribology in Wr. Neustadt, hope to inspire innovation in lubricant in lubricant technology by understanding how the microalgae’s structure and surface chemistry affect friction, stress, adhesion and wear.
