A Study of (N-octylic acid)-N-Quinazolin-4-One Methylester as an Oil Additive
(n-octylic acid)-N-quinazolin-4-one methylester was synthesized as potential lubricating oil additive. The friction and wear behaviors of the synthesized compound as an additive in liquid paraffin on 12.7mm diameter steel ball bearing specimen were evaluated with a four-ball machine. The worn surfaces of the steel balls were observed using a scanning electron microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. It was found that the novel compound as an additive in liquid paraffin was effective in improving the tribological performance.
