OBJECTIVE Differential thermal analysis (DTA) using a split fiber optic light source has been reported to be a convenient method of measuring the degree of conversion (DC) of light-activated composites. The purpose of this study was to compare the results by DTA and Fourier transformation infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and evaluate the usefulness of the DTA method. METHODS Experimental 2,2-bis[4-(3-methacryloyloxy-2-hydroxypropoxy)phenyl]propane-based composites containing SiO2 filler and… CONTINUE READING
