A study is reported for the boundary layer of lubricant arising under conditions of selective transport; it is considered that electrochemical processes dominate this transport, and a study has been made of the emf generated, the rectified voltage, and the resistance of the boundary layer as functions of the nominal load. The frictional force was also measured. It is found that the selective transfer occurs in the steady state through a boundary layer of lubricant that interacts chemically with the surfaces. The resulting boundary layers have rectified properties, while the system St. 40Kh-glycerol-Br. OTsS generates an emf as a galvanic cell. The effects have been examined as functions of the friction conditions.
