Discovery, design, and development of new lubricants must meet requirements of nature and engineering applications. Today’s lubricants aim to be more efficient, environmentally friendly, and possibility multi-purpose, such as protection and cleaning. In this Special Issue of Lubricants, we discuss state-of-the-art lubricants that are from nature, or inspired by nature, including biological systems. Reviews and recent developments are encouraged to be submitted. The goal is to give us an overview of where we are and help us to develop new understanding as well as new lubricants.
