Solubility of Dental Ceramics in Electric Fields

Received: 21 April 2022;  Published: 15 June 2022;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2202012

Abstract

Combining dental ceramics with other prosthetic metallic restorations might release metal ions, thus affecting the oral tissues of the patients. In this study, we evaluated the electrochemical solubility of various dental ceramics in a galvanic experimental setup in vitro. Smooth and rough feldspath [...]

Modifications of Glass Ionomer Cements Using Nanotechnology: Recent Advances

Received: 01 May 2022;  Published: 01 June 2022;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2202011

Abstract

Glass ionomer cements (GICs) are dental materials that were invented by Wilson & Kent in 1972. They can chemically bond to enamel and dentin and can exhibit anti-cariogenic activity that allows the release and uptake of fluoride ions. They also possess the ability to render color. The setting re [...]

Role of Point of Zero Charge in the Adsorption of Cationic Textile Dye on Standard Biochars from Aqueous Solutions: Selection Criteria and Performance Assessment

Received: 19 April 2022;  Published: 19 May 2022;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2202010

Abstract

The point of zero charge (PZC) is an inherent electrokinetic property of biochars (BC). It influences the adsorption process under certain pH conditions. Herein, we report the method of determination of the PZC values of ten standard BCs. We used the salt addition method to select the BCs with suita [...]

4D Printed Shape Memory Polymers: Morphology and Fabrication of a Functional Antenna

Received: 17 February 2022;  Published: 29 April 2022;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2202009

Abstract

Shape memory polymers (SMPs) are smart materials that can respond to certain thermal, chemical or electrical stimuli by inducing a structural conformation change into a temporary shape. In this work, a 3D printing process based on a Vat Photo-polymerization of a shape memory polymer (SMP) was invest [...]

Development of Low Elastic Modulus Titanium Alloys as Implant Biomaterials

Received: 20 March 2022;  Published: 21 April 2022;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2202008

Abstract

Biomaterials have always been the focus of material scientists and engineers. Titanium and its alloys have favorable properties, such as high strength, low density, good corrosion resistance, non-toxicity, low elastic modulus, biocompatibility, etc. Thus, Ti alloys have received much attention from [...]

Reaction Kinetics and Characterization of Slag-Based, High Strength, “Just-Add-Water” Type (One-Part) Alkali-Activated Binders

Received: 03 February 2022;  Published: 08 April 2022;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2202006

Abstract

The influence of different levels of alkalinity, expressed using M2O-to-binder ratio (n) and activator SiO2-to-M2O ratio (Ms), (M being the Na+ [...]
