FTIR observation of cleavage state of a mica–organic hybrid solid lubricant under reciprocating sliding conditions
Review articleOpen access

Highlights•Lubrication performance of mica is improved by an intercalated alkyl ammonium cation.•The improved lubricity is due to the promotion of the mica's cleavability.•The absorption wavenumbers for in-plane Si–O bonds were higher as sliding progressed.•The IR shift is caused by mica's cleavage.
