Fracture toughness (KIc) is an intrinsic property which may be related to the ability of a restorative material to resist fracture and abrasion. This property may change for a dental composite restorative due to the effects of various oral solvents. The hypothesis to be tested was that aging in ethanol would cause a reduction in the fracture toughness of(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term effect of aging in water on the physical properties of experimental composites having systematically controlled differences in degree of conversion (DC), filler volume fraction (Vf), and percentage of silane-treated fillers. Composites were made with a 50% Bis-GMA:50% TEGDMA light-cured resin and a 1-2(More)
The objective of the study was to evaluate the relationship between curing light intensity and (1) linear post-gel polymerization contraction strain, and (2) degree of conversion of a dental composite. Cylindrical specimens of a dental resin composite were cured from a distance of 7 mm for 40 s at four attenuated light intensities (71%, 49%, and 34% of(More)
This paper investigates combining video frames of different spatial resolutions to model and study sub-object dropping based on the concept of Quality Shaping in the Distributed Multimedia Plays (DMP) architecture for future networked collaboration. It is aimed at reducing the data rate needed to stream video data over a network while keeping the perceived(More)
A new thin-layer chromatography method was developed to detect parathion-methyl (0.0-dimethyl-0-p-nitrophenyl phosphorothioate) and its metabolite methyl-paraoxon and the degradation produce p-nitrophenol in samples of animal and plant origin. Coupling with Bratton-Marshall reagent, as used in colorimetry, was employed to detect the compounds on the(More)
A simplified TAS method was used to determine parathion-methyl (0.0-dimethyl-0-p-nitrophenyl phosphorothioate), methyl-paraoxon and p-nitrophenol in samples of animal origin and in foodstuffs. These substances were isolated by thermomicropartition in the TAS oven, with immediate uptake of the condensate on thin-layer plates. Identifications was done(More)
