The aim of this work is to evaluate the influence of different concentrations of functionalized and nonfunctionalized TiO2 nanotubes and nanoparticles on the properties of experimental resins. Resins containing BIS-GMA and TEGDMA (3:1 by weight) and 0,25wt% campohorquinone (CQ) and 1wt% DMAEMA amine. TiO2 Nanotubes and nanoparticles will be functionalized using a silane 3-aminopropyl trimethoxysilane (APTMS) or a experimental functionalization using 3-Trimethoxysilyl-Propyl-Methacrylate (TMSPM). The incorporation of TiO2 nanostructures to the experimental resins will be made by mechanical mixing and 0,3wt% or 0,9wt% will be added. Functionalized and non-functionalized TiO2 nanostructures will be characterized by X-ray diffractometry, transmission electron microscopy, Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy, and thermogravimetric analysis. Resin disks (n=10) will be prepared with a polytetrafluoroethylene mold (6 mm in diameter x 1 mm in thickness) and will be distributed in groups according to the type, quantity and functionalization of TiO2 nanostrutures. The specimens will be light-activated for 20 seconds. The analysis of the degree of conversion will be performed through the FTIR-ATR. The analysis of the microhardness will be performed through a Knoop indenter performing 3 indentations in each sample. For the evaluation of the crosslink density, after the initial top-surface hardness (MK1) evaluation, the specimens will be immersed in ethanol for 24 hours and the top hardness will be reassessed (MK2). The results will be analyzed through 3-way Anova and Tukey tests, in case of normal distribution and homogeneity of variances. The level of significance adopted will be 5%. (AU)
