Among different available cross linkers, grape seed Proanthocyanidin (PA) gained much popularity regarding different its beneficial effects which includes antibacterial, antiviral, anticarcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, antiallergic and antioxidant properties.
Collagen Cross Linkers are agents that forms inter and intramolecular crosslinks with type I collagen fibers in dentin and helps to stabilize the matrix.
According to the results, it has been found that the gel shows a good cross linker concentration-dependent swelling behavior with transition from non-Fickian (n=0.
To determine the cross linker concentration sensitivity for the swelling behavior of the gel, the values of the diffusion parameter, n were analyzed by graphical and statistical methods.
where n is diffusion exponent, no is pre-exponential factor, C L is cross linker concentration sensitivity coefficient of the gel.
