Biomaterials Properties Database consists of tables which are provided as a service of the University of Michigan-NIDR Materials Science Research Center at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. The data come from the book, Dental Materials and Their Selection, second edition, 1997, edited by Dr. William J. O'Brien, Director of the Biomaterials Research Center.
Upon accessing the site, the user will find a link to the Biomaterials Properties Database; the site's main page offers general site information, a link to the source book's publisher (Quintessence Publishing), contact information for the site's sponsor (business address), submissions information, and a link to the Biomaterials Properties Tables Listing. Users should select the database link at the top of the main page; an alphabetical listing of biomaterials property table subjects appears. Forty-two tables are compiled here; selecting a table name then reveals its namesake, which offers general information and a chart of data, viewed by scrolling.
Selecting the Biomaterials Properties Tables Listing reveals the same topic list noted above; at the bottom of a data table are found additional site links: (1) Introduction to Biomaterials Properties; (2) Biomaterials Properties Listings; and (3) References (1-100, 101-200, and 201-244). Each references link displays a list of citations for its selected data. The site is sponsored by Dr. William J. O'Brien; Biomaterials Research Center; School of Dentistry; University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
