Elution of organic compounds from resin-based dental fillings during their application in the human mouth environment may have a potential impact on the human health. Ethanol, water and other solvents very often present in the human mouth have the ability to penetrate dental fillings placed in the human tooth. Penetration of liquids into the tooth may lead(More)
Biocompatibility constitutes the most fundamental requirement with respect to all dental materials to be applied within the oral cavity. In its environment, various toxic compounds may be released by dental materials which pose potential threats to the patient's health. Due to the fact that dentures remain in the oral cavity for a very long time, a detailed(More)
The solubility parameter (delta(2)), corrected solubility parameter (delta(T)) and its components (delta(d), delta(p), delta(h)) were determined for series of pharmaceutical excipients by using inverse gas chromatography (IGC). Principal component analysis (PCA) was applied for the selection of the solubility parameters which assure the complete(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this investigation was to determine the effect of storage in disinfectants and artificial saliva on a series of commercial soft lining materials for dentures. Changes in mechanical properties and the nature of chemicals released into these solutions were studied. METHODS Four soft lining materials were studied (Vertex Soft® and(More)
The influence of the polymers' properties on the solid-phase extraction recovery was studied. Different porous copolymers were used: di(methacryloyloxymethyl)naphtalene-divinylbenzene with ester functional groups (DMN-DVB), 4,4'-bis(maleimido)diphenylmethane-divinylbenzene with imide functional groups (BM-DVB), p,p'-dihydroxydiphenylmethane diglycidyl(More)
The Hansen solubility parameter (HSP) seems to be a useful tool for the thermodynamic characterization of different materials. Unfortunately, estimation of the HSP values can cause some problems. In this work different procedures by using inverse gas chromatography have been presented for calculation of pharmaceutical excipients' solubility parameter. The(More)
The principle aim of this work was an application of inverse gas chromatography (IGC) for the estimation of solubility parameter for pharmaceutical excipients. The retention data of number of test solutes were used to calculate Flory-Huggins interaction parameter (chi1,2infinity) and than solubility parameter (delta2), corrected solubility parameter(More)
The novel approach for hydroxyapatite (HA) surface characterization was proposed. The main aim of this investigation was to estimate surface properties of HA as a biomaterial in real system i.e. in simulated body fluid (SBF). One of the method, which might be used to reflect the influence of liquid environment on sorption properties of material being(More)
Inverse gas chromatography (IGC) has been used to characterise the surface properties of polycaprolactone (PCL) and poly(lactic acid) (PLA). The dispersive component of the surface free energy (gamma(S)(D)) was found to be very small for both of them--values close to 30 mJ/m(2) in the case of the PLA and ca. 40 mJ/m(2) for the PCL. The retention times of(More)
