This study was performed to determine whether some flexural properties of a denture base resin material could be improved through reinforcement with five types of aesthetic fibers at 3% concentration by weight and in 2, 4, and 6 mm length. Five specimens of similar dimensions were prepared for each of the test groups; base resin and the same resin with glass, rayon, polyester, nylon 6 and nylon 6,6 fibers in three different lengths. Flexural properties were evaluated by using a 3-point bending test. A visual examination was also made to determine mode of fracture of the specimens. The incorporation of different fibers in varying lengths had no significant effect on flexural strength of the resin. The specimens reinforced with nylon 6,6 fibers of 6 mm length showed the highest flexural strength. Young's modulus and maximum load suggests that such reinforcement makes resin resistant to fracture.


In vitro and in vivo evaluation of the effects of demineralized bone matrix or calcium sulfate addition to polycaprolactone-bioglass composites

The objective of this study was to improve the efficacy of polycaprolactone/bioglass (PCL/BG) bone substitute using demineralized bone matrix (DBM) or calcium sulfate (CS) as a third component. Composite discs involving either DBM or CS were prepared by compression moulding. Bioactivity of discs was evaluated by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (ESCA) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) following simulated body fluid incubation. The closest Calcium/Phosphate ratio to that of hydroxyl carbonate apatit...

Ni, Siyu; Sun, Linlin; Ercan, Batur; Liu, Luting; Ziemer, Katherine; Webster, Thomas J. (Wiley, 2014-08-01)
In this study, 316L stainless steel with tunable nanometer pit sizes (0, 25, 50, and 60 nm) were fabricated by an anodization procedure in an ethylene glycol electrolyte solution containing 5 vol % perchloric acid. The surface morphology and elemental composition of the 316L stainless steel were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The nano-pit arrays on all of the 316L stainless steel samples were in a regular arrang...
An investigation of microstructure, microhardness and biocompatibility characteristics of yttrium hydroxyapatite doped with fluoride
Toker, Sıdıka Mine; Evis, Zafer; Department of Biomedical Engineering (2010)
The aim of this study was to investigate the microstructure, microhardness and biocompatibility properties of nano hydroxyapatite (HA) doped with a constant yttrium (Y3+) and varying fluoride (F-) compositions. HA was synthesized via precipitation method and sintered at 1100C for 1 hour. Increased densities were achieved upon Y3+ doping while F- doping led to a decrease in densities. For structural analysis, XRD, SEM and FTIR spectroscopy examinations were performed. No secondary phases were observed in XR...
The biodegradation of benzene, toluene and phenol in a two-phase system
Hamed, TA; Bayraktar, E; Mehmetoglu, U; Mehmetoglu, T (Elsevier BV, 2004-07-15)
A two-phase aqueous-organic system was used to degrade benzene, toluene and phenol, individually and as mixture by Pseudomonas putida F1 (ATCC 700007). In the first stage of the work, the effect of the phase ratio (0-1, v/v) and the agitation rate (150 and 200 rpm) on the biodegradation process was investigated in an orbital shaker using 2-undecanone as the solvent and the most suitable phase ratio and agitation rate were found to be 0.0625 (v/v) and 200 rpm, respectively. P. putida F1 was added into the aq...

In this study, we aimed to prepare and characterize porous scaffolds composed of pure and boron oxide (B2O3)-doped bioactive glass (BG) that were infiltrated by cellulose acetate-gelatin (CA-GE) polymer solution for bone tissue engineering applications. Composite scaffolds were cross-linked with glutaraldehyde after polymer coating to protect the structural integrity of the polymeric-coated scaffolds. The impact of B(2)O(3)incorporation into BG-polymer porous scaffolds on the cross-sectional morphology, por...
