Abstract:

Further examinations have been conducted which test the feasibility of using metal films, deposited by electroless or chemical methods, for use in various areas of the military dental program. Advances during the past year include the development of an alternate reduction system which would exclude the use of hydrazine, the further characterization of this alternate system, and a comparison of it to the hydrazine-based system by means of resistance measurements, rate studies, tensile testing, ESCA, and scanning electron microscopy. Animal tests were also made at the USAIDR Laboratories to further test the suitability of the new chemical system. Author
