Nanomaterials play important roles in tribolgy and manufacturing. This lecture provides an opportunity for us to review and learn the knowledge and techniques that have been involved in nanomaterials and nanotribology areas. Targeting tribological applications, a brief history of nanoparticulates, dated back more than 2500 years, will be given briefly. The classification and synthesis of nanoparticles will be followed by nanomaterils and nanocomposites, their characterization techniques, and mechanical, tribological, chemical, and physical properties. Discussion ends with summary of applications.
