Title: Oil-soluble hairy nanoparticles as lubricant additives

Abstract

Oil-soluble polymer brush-grafted nanoparticles (hairy NPs) were synthesized by surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization of lauryl methacrylate from initiator-functionalized silica nanoparticles and used as an additive for polyalphaolefin (PAO) for friction and wear reduction. Addition of 1 wt% hairy nanoparticles into PAO led to significant friction and wear reduction compared with PAO base oil.
