The purpose of this article is to study the possibility of using fullerene additives and their effect on the antiwear properties of aviation mineral and synthetic oils. The method of increasing the anti-wear properties of mineral MK-8p and synthetic Mobil Jet Oil 254 oil for turbojet aircraft engines by adding fullerene additive C60 is considered. It has been shown that the anti-wear properties of synthetic Mobil Jet Oil 254 oil for turbojet aircraft engines exceed MK-8p mineral oil by more than 10%. Increasing the concentration of fullerene additive in oils increases the wear resistance of conjugated surfaces. It was established that the increase in the concentration of the fullerene additive in oils shifts the critical load to higher values for both mineral and synthetic oils. The intensity of this growth is observed in mineral oil to a greater extent than in synthetic oil. The use of fullerenes as an anti-wear additive to oils for turbojet engines is proposed, which improves anti-friction properties and reduces the wear of parts of machines and mechanisms. Scientific progress is determined mainly by experimental research, the conduct of which in this direction is quite relevant.
