Access from EThOS:
Nanofibres can be produced from the electrospinning of a number of solutions. The aims of this investigation were to develop a novel method for the production of silica nanofibres from a 30% colloidal silica solution, and then to use the nanofibres to reinforce a chemically cured Bis-GMA/ TEGDMA resin matrix to produce a prototype aesthetic archwire.
