Abstract : Objective: To characterize the post-irradiation conversion of a silorane composite. Specifically, to determine the time and amount of conversion that occurs for the selected silorane composite, and to compare these parameters with those established in the literature for methacrylate based composites. Methods: Silorane composite (Filtek LS) samples of 0.5 mm thickness were placed on the attenuated total reflectance (ATR) attachment of a Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy(FTIR) device. Spectra were measured immediately after photo curing and at specified post-irradiation times up to 10 days.
