"An important goal in the study of lubricating greases is the determination of the mechanism of additive action in lubricating greases and the effect of additive concentration on the improvement of particular properties. As a step in this direction, one aim of this investigation was an attempt to determine whether grease additives are sorbed on the thickener surface, or are dissolved in the oil phase, or if a combination of these effects prevails. Exploratory sorption and extraction experiments were run by Tu using greases thickened with lithium hydroxystearate and Baragel and using only one concentration of additive. More detailed studies on these systems (using a range of additive concentrations) and initial work on silica thickened greases were done in this investigation. In addition, the thickening properties of a new material not used as a commercial grease thickener were investigated"--Introduction, page 4.
