The copper(II) complex with alkylphosphonic acid monoalkyl ester (CuAMP) was synthesized, and its structure shown to be laminar on the basis of fast atom bombardment mass spectroscopy (FABMS). The extreme-pressure, antiwear and antiseizure performance of CuAMP was assessed using a four-ball machine. The results showed that CuAMP exhibits better extreme-pressure and antiwear properties than tricresyl phosphate. Based on the results of surface analysis, the antiwear action mechanism of CuAMP is discussed.
