The aim of this study was to introduce Ag-Cu phase nanopowder as an additive to improve the corrosion behavior of dental amalgams. A novel Ag-Cu nanopowder was synthesized by the precipitation method. An amalgam alloy powder (World-Cap) was added and mixed with 5 wt.% and 10 wt.% of Ag-Cu nanopowders, respectively, to form experimental amalgam alloy powders. The original alloy powder was used as a control. Alloy powders were examined using X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy… CONTINUE READING
