Lubrication Properties of Phospholipid Liposome Coated Silk Microspheres

An aqueous liposome coated silk microsphere suspension is an effective lubricant, providing a low friction coefficient, minimizing surface wear, and avoiding degradation even over relatively prolonged cycling conditions. It is proposed that the lubricating properties of the silk microspheres are a result of an efficient rolling mechanism.
