Cutting edge MTM nanoparticle research carried out at the highly respected Carpick laboratory. The paper showed how relatively large nanoparticle of Zirconium dioxide (ZrO2), combined with organic capping ligands can form robust tribofilms under a wide range of contact conditions. Impressively significant   wear reduction was also reported when the nanoparticles were blended in commercial formulations.
