Abstract

Graphene and MoS2 were modified by organic molecules to obtain modified reduced graphene oxide (MRGO) and modified molybdenum disulfide (MMD) powders. MRGO and MMD were uniformly dispersed in base oil (PAO6) by ultrasonic and microwave assisted ball milling (UMBM). This study tested the dispersion stability and tribological properties of additives in the oil, and analyzed the elements of the friction surface. Besides, the mechanism of anti-friction and anti-wear was discussed. The results show that the UMBM method is an effective way to introduce additives in lubricating oil. Compared with direct addition, it can effectively improve the dispersion stability of additives in the oil, so that additives can be better deposited and adsorbed on the friction surface in the friction process, and improve the tribological properties of lubricating oil.
