This study was conducted to observe the effect of different monomers on tensile and flexural strengths of poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) denture base resin when they were used as a liquid component. A conventional heat-cured denture base polymer powder was mixed with ethyl, isobutyl and tert-butyl methacrylate monomers, respectively. After the polymerization process was completed, the tensile and flexural strength values of these specimens were compared with those that of PMMA resin specimens polymerized with methyl methacrylate monomer (MMA). Tensile specimens were prepared in a dumbbell shape using a stainless steel mold constructed according to ASTM D638M-91a. Rectangular flexural specimens were prepared as designated in ASTM D790M-92. Each group was subjected to tensile strength and flexural strength tests using a crosshead speed of 50 mm min(-1) using a universal testing machine. In addition to mechanical tests, the structural change in the acrylic resin specimens prepared with different monomers was observed by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer with Attenuated Total Reflectance unit (FTIR-ATR). The differences in the tensile strength values of all specimens were not found to be statistically significant (p > 0.05), whereas, the flexural strength values showed statistical differences among the groups tested (p < 0.05). In the results of the tests performed, it was reached that the flexural and tensile strength values of acrylic resins obtained by various methacrylate monomers were different. It can be said that these acrylic resins can be used for various aims in the different fields as well as in dentistry field.

In this study, the influence of defects that are occurred in manufacturing operations of filament wound composite overwrapped pressure vessels on burst pressure is investigated experimentally. Firstly, material characterization methods such as tensile testing and fiber volume fraction testing of carbon/epoxy composite specimens are completed. Following determining of different layer configurations for small scale composite pressure vessels, manufacturing and burst testing of vessels are accomplished. Ef...
The performance of polyethersulfone nanocomposite membrane in the removal of industrial dyes
Mahmoudian, Mehdi; Ghasemıkouchameshgı, Mahmoud (2021-05-14)
In the present study, graphene oxide was functionalized by hyperbranched epoxy and then used as an additive in the polyethersulfone membrane. The process of preparation and characterization of the synthesized hyperbranched epoxy, and graphene oxide modification was investigated by some analysis such as XRD, EDAX, FTIR, NMR, and TGA. Morphology of modified nanostructures, their distribution in the membrane matrix, and morphology of membranes were evaluated by TEM, FESEM analysis. Experimental results showed ...

The aim of this research is to study effect of different solvents on the membrane morphology and on the performance of zeolite-filled composite pervaporation membranes. PAN (polyacrylonitrile) was used as a base polymer and zeolite 13x (32 wt.%) was used as the filler. The solvents considered were DMF (dimethyl formamide), DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide), DMAc (dimethyl acedamide) and THF (tetrahydrofuran). The cross-sectional morphology of manufactured membranes shows three layers: a zeolite-free polymer layer, ...
Mass spectrometric study on plasma reactions of methyl methacrylate-styrene mixtures
Ozden (Orhan), Bilge; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Akovau, Guneri (1992-01-01)
Gas phase plasma reactions of various styrene (St) and methyl methacrylate (MMA) mixtures have been studied by the use of a mass spectrometer. The effects of rf power and composition of mixture on initial rates of consumption and on the reaction products have been investigated. The results indicate that St has a catalytic effect on the gas phase plasma polymerization of MMA, whereas MMA has an inhibiting effect on St gas phase plasma polymerization. Decomposition of monomers, at all compositions and rf powe...
The effect of 3-hydroxyphenylboronic acid on thermal characteristics of polybenzoxazine based on phenol and 4-aminomethylbenzoate

In this study, a polybenzoxazine, (PPab) based on phenol and 4-aminomethyl benzoate and its composites containing various amounts of 3-hydroxyphenylboronic acid, (HB) were prepared by stepwise curing. It has been found that thermal properties of composites were improved as the amount of HB introduced was increased. The improvements in thermal characteristics were associated with condensation reactions of hydroxyl groups of polybenzoxazine and ester groups on the aniline linkages yielding a highly cross-link...
