Graphene and graphitic nanoribbons possess different types of carbon hybridizations exhibiting different chemical activity. In particular, the basal plane of the honeycomb lattice of nanoribbons consisting of sp(2)-hybridized carbon atoms is chemically inert. Interestingly, their bare edges could be more reactive as a result of the presence of extra(More)
The present study was undertaken to evaluate the clinical applicability of cast CP titanium crowns fabricated with sintered molds. To this end, the dimensional changes and accuracy of fit of cast CP titanium crowns, manufactured under varying mold firing temperatures, were examined. Molds were fired at 7 temperatures. The outer height of the crown and outer(More)
Vibrational-rotational properties of CH(4) adsorbed on the nanopores of single-wall carbon nanohorns (SWCNHs) at 105-140 K were investigated using IR spectroscopy. The difference vibrational-rotational bands of the ν(3) and ν(4) modes below 130 K show suppression of the P and R branches, while the Q branches remain. The widths of the Q branches are much(More)
We evaluated the effect of impression materials used in preparation of pure titanium castings on the surface reactive layer. Surface roughness of the refractory models before and after firing was smaller when silicone rather than agar impression material was used. The surface roughness of castings prepared with T-invest varied little with the impression(More)
