This book focuses on the triboemission of low-energy electrons from the freshly generated surface. These electrons play the most crucial role in the chemical reactions at the tribological interface. New models and TIP (thermodymanics of irreversible processes) describe in detail the behavior of emitted electrons which lower the activation energy of the chemical reactions. This book also highlights tribocatalysis phenomena as examples of the lowering of the activation energy. A book titled Tribocatalysis has never been published before this.
Introduction. Tribochemistry. Tribocatalysis. Tribocorrosion. Concluding Remarks and Prospects: Toward the Unified Understanding of Tribocatalysis, Tribochemistry, and Tribocorrosion.
