Effects of environmental conditions on mechanical and physical properties of flax fibers
The environmental degradation behaviour of flax fibers and their mechanical properties were investigated. Upgraded Duralin flax fibers, which have been treated by a novel treatment process for… Expand
The influence of strontium substitution in fluorapatite glasses and glass-ceramics
Strontium is often substituted for calcium in order to confer radio-opacity in glasses used for dental cements, biocomposites and bioglass-ceramics. The present paper investigates the influence of… Expand

The surface characteristics of several natural fibers—flax, hemp and cellulose—were investigated using scanning electron microscopy, BET-surface area and zeta (ζ-) potential measurements. ζ-Potential… Expand
Real‐Time Nucleation and Crystallization Studies of a Fluorapatite Glass–Ceramics Using Small‐Angle Neutron Scattering and Neutron Diffraction
Real-time small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) and neutron diffraction (ND) studies have been performed on a calcium fluorapatite (Ca5(PO4)3F) (FAP) glass–ceramic composition. The cast glass… Expand
Characterization of the structure of calcium alumino-silicate and calcium fluoro-alumino-silicate glasses by magic angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance (MAS-NMR)
Abstract Calcium aluminosilicate and calcium fluoro-aluminosilicate glasses have been characterized by 29Si, 27Al and 19F MAS-NMR. The two calcium aluminosilicate glasses examined were based on the… Expand
Characterisation of fluorine containing glasses by 19F, 27Al, 29Si and 31P MAS-NMR spectroscopy.
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to characterise a range of model and commercially available glasses used to form glass (ionomer) polyalkenoate cements. METHODS A range of model… Expand
