The development of a tool to predict temperature-exposure of incinerated teeth using colourimetric and hydroxyapatite crystal size data

This tool is a holistic, robust and reliable approach to estimate temperature of heat-exposed pig teeth, with high accuracy, and may act as a valuable proxy to estimate heat exposure for human teeth in forensic casework.

Tooth-derived flexible supercapacitor



Evaluation of crystalline indexes obtained through infrared spectroscopy and x-ray diffraction in thermally treated human tooth samples.

Understanding the Crystallinity Indices Behavior of Burned Bones and Teeth by ATR-IR and XRD in the Presence of Bioapatite Mixed with Other Phosphate and Carbonate Phases

We have critically investigated the ATR-IR spectroscopy data behavior of burned human teeth as opposed to the generally observed behavior in human bones that were subjected to heat treatment, whether

Spectrophotometric analysis of color changes in teeth incinerated at increasing temperatures.

The Potential of X‐Ray Diffraction in the Analysis of Burned Remains from Forensic Contexts *

The experimental results from the 57 human bone sections and 12 molar teeth determined that the growth of hydroxylapatite crystallites is a direct and predictable function of the applied temperature, which follows a nonlinear logistic relationship.

Thermal stability of mineralized and demineralized dentin: a differential scanning calorimetric study.

Findings indicated that the thermal stability of collagen in dentin is lower than collagen in uncalcified connective tissue, and it is suggested that in calcified collagen, the apatite crystallites may have intruded into spaces of the cross links of intra- and inter-fibrils, and in so doing, destroyed the crosslinks.
