    Abstract: In past few years DLC coatings and bio based lubricants have gained significant attraction due to their excellent tribological properties. Biolubricants showed synergetic behavior with contact surfaces, when used as a lubricant. Reason behind the attraction towards biolubricants is that they are renewable and biodegradable source of energy. The dom... Show More
