Influence of Ni dopant on structural, vibrational and tribological characteristics of synthetic magnesium hydrosilicate.

There has been an emerging interest in use of nano particles of magnesium hydrosilicates as film forming tribological compounds for energy efficiency and industrial machinery life time extension. Additional benefit is clean nature of the materials which can lead to formulation of clean lubricants. We previously reported remarkable performance achieved in our exploratory study that excite curiosity toward mechanism of a film formation that is currently poorly understood.

Here we report variation in structural, vibrational and tribological characteristics of magnesium hydrosilicates with lizardite structure from ab-initio simulations and their correlation with measured data (XRD, FTIR, SEM, TEM, DSC/ DTA, Tribometry). Such information helps to develop a model on tribological behavior and tailor performance of MHS for energy applications.
