Production of Potassium Titanate Whisker Reinforced Dental Composites
Kapusuz, Derya; Park, Jongee; Öztürk, Abdullah (2013-01-01)
Potassium titanate (K2O.nTiO2) whiskers (KTWs) were produced by sol-gel method and embedded into UDMA-TEGDMA resins to produce KTW reinforced composites that could be used for both anterior and posterior fillings. The effect Ti/K molar ratio on the chemical, structural and functional properties of the KTWs was investigated using XRD, HR-TEM, and BET analysis. Morphology and the surface properties of the KTWs rely on the Ti/K ratio. However, HR-TEM studies clarified that the KTWs grow along [110] axis regard...

Is the concept of the urban utopia now defunct? This is a study of the modern urban utopias of the late 20th century, investigated their recent qualities in respect to capitalist mode of production. Accordingly, a recent example, that of Dubai, will be studied and its rapid growth over the last 20 years will be questioned. The primary objective of this thesis is to provide an understanding of how and to what extent flexible accumulation requires a spatial fix, in particular in new geographies, and mobilizes...
