ABSTRACT
X-ray absorption near edge structure spectroscopy (XANES) analysis has been routinely used to study the complex chemical interactions between additives in engine oil and metallic surfaces during high-temperature and pressure reciprocating wear conditions. XANES analysis provides detailed chemical and structural information on the resultant antiwear and tribo films formed on metallic surfaces. The following review will illustrate how XANES analysis on the macro scale can provide the information required to elucidate complex film formation mechanisms, then describes the use of emerging XANES spectromicroscopy to such systems, and concludes by showing the complementary nature of the macro and micro scale spatially resolved XANES analysis; Professor Bancroft has utilized the combination of these to stay at the forefront of XANES research in the field of tribology and in spectroscopy science in general.
