Table 3 Diametral tensile strength of GIC specimens

From: Development of a novel antimicrobial-releasing glass ionomer cement functionalized with chlorhexidine hexametaphosphate nanoparticles

NP substitution [%] Diametral tensile strength [MPa] (standard deviation in parentheses)
0 14.1 (3.7)
1 14.3 (4.9)
2 15.7 (4.3)
5 15.5 (1.1)
10 11.5 (2.8)
20 9.4 (2.6)
  1. The ANOVA gave p = 0.054 indicating that there were no statistically significantly differences between tensile strengths of the different GICs to a 95% confidence level.
