Low friction coating and corrosion protection delivered with one nanocomposite material

Materials researchers from Saarbruecken developed a low friction coating combining two properties: It shows lubrication properties similar to grease and oil and it protects from corrosion. The new material is suitable for the coating of metals and metal alloys, such as steel, aluminium or magnesium.

Forces among molecules are tiny but important

Forces are not only associated with machines or muscles. You can also find them elsewhere, for instance between molecules. Theoretical chemists like Dr. Łukasz Tomasz Rajchel (University of Warsaw) are familiar with that. However, they – or rather their computers – are not capable of calculating them with high accuracy and efficiency at the same time.
