Interaction between zinc dialkyldithiophosphate and amine



This paper reports work on complex formation from ZDP and various aliphatic amines, and their equilibrium states in oil, adsorptivities and antiwear properties are investigated. Complex formation from ZDP and amine was proven by isolation and identification of solid crystals, and various complexes were found from mono- and diamines. The complex from monoamine has lower adsorptivity than free ZDP, while the poorer adsorptivity of ZDP/monoamine complex makes its antiwear property worse.
