Hydroxyl-Terminated Poly(urethane acrylate) as a Soft Liner in Dental Applications: Synthesis and Characterization

Keskin, Selda
Usanmaz, Ali
Hydroxyl-terminated poly(urethane acrylate)s were synthesized for use in biomedical applications. Acrylate end capping via an interesterification reaction was successfully achieved with methacryloyl chloride addition to the hydroxyl ends of the polyurethane at low temperatures. 2,4-Toluene diisocyanate, 1,6-hexane diisocyanate, and methylene diphenyl diisocyanate were used as diisocyanates for urethane synthesis, and they were end-capped with methyl methacrylate and hydroxyethyl methacrylate. The nature of the monomers that we used had an effect on the thermal and morphological properties that were interpreted in terms of the level of hydrogen bonding and the degree of phase separation. The synthesized polymers were characterized by NMR, Fourier transform infrared/attenuated total reflectance spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetric analysis, and gel permeation chromatography. The number-average molecular weights of the poly(urethane acrylate)s were 2500-6000 g/mol. To use the polymer as a soft-liner material in denture applications, the residual isocyanate should not exist. In this study, we showed that a prepolymer without residual isocyanate could be synthesized. (C) 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 117: 458-466, 2010


Thermal stability and decomposition mechanism of poly(p-acryloyloxybenzoic acid and poly(p-methacryloyloxybenzoic acid) and their graft copolymers with polypropylene, Part II
Cetin, S.; Tincer, T. (Wiley, 2008-04-05)
Thermal stability and decomposition mechanism of poly(p-acryloyloxybenzoic) acid (PABA), p-methacryloyloxybenzoic acid (PMBA), and their graft coproducts of PP were studied by differential scanning calorimetry, direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry, and TG/IR system, combined thermogravimetric analyzer, and FTIR spectrometer. The homopolymers and corresponding grafts were found to be stable in nitrogen atmosphere but started to decompose under atmospheric conditions when heated above 230 degrees C. PABA and PA...
Electrorheological properties of kaolinite, polyindole, and polyindole/kaolinite composite suspensions
Arslan, Yasin; Unal, Halil Ibrahim; Yilmaz, Hasim; Sari, Bekir (Wiley, 2007-06-05)
In this study, polyindole (PIN) and polyindole/kaolinite (PIN/KAO) composite were synthesized by free radical polymerization using FeCl3 as an initiator. Average particle sizes (d(50)) of PIN and PIN/KAO composite were determined by dynamic light scattering (DLS) as 7.2 and 6.2 mu m, respectively. The samples were characterized by FTIR, elemental analysis, DSC/TGA and SEM measurements. Suspensions of KAO, PIN, and PIN/KAO composite were prepared in silicone oil (SO) and the sedimentation stabilities were de...
Poly(ethylene terephthalate)/Carbon Nanotube Composites Prepared With Chemically Treated Carbon Nanotubes
Yesil, Sertan; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2011-07-01)
Surfaces of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNT) were functionalized by treatment with strong acid mixture (purification) followed by modification with sodium dodecyl sulfate, poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG), and diglycidyl ether of Bisphenol A (DGEBA). Poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET)-based conductive polymer composites were prepared by using these CNT by means of melt mixing with a twin screw extruder. Amount of carboxylic acid groups on the CNT surface increased after acid treatment but decreased with surfac...
Viscoelastic characteristics of chain extended/branched and linear polyethylene terephthalate resins
Yılmazer, Ülkü; Xanthos, M; Bayram, Göknur; Tan, V (Wiley, 2000-03-01)
Two chemically modified chain extended/branched polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resins and one unmodified resin, considered to be linear, were characterized in terms of their melt flow, die swell, and viscoelastic properties. The three resins had reportedly similar nominal intrinsic viscosities but exhibited different viscoelastic behavior. The modified resins had lower melt flow index, higher die swell, higher complex viscosity and higher storage modulus than the unmodified one. The Cole-Cole plots of the...
Indium tin oxide nanoparticles as anode for light-emitting diodes
Çırpan, Ali (Wiley, 2006-02-15)
Thin films of indium tin oxide (ITO) nanoparticles have been investigated as anode materials for polymer light-emitting diodes. A luminance efficiency (0.13 cd/ A), higher than that (0.09 cd/A) obtained in a control devices fabricated on conventional commercial ITO anodes were found. The thin films were made by spin coating of a suspension followed by annealing. The ITO nartoparticle films have a stable sheet resistance of 200 ohm/sq, and an optical transmittance greater than 86% over the range of 400-1000 ...
