5. APPLICATION - The minimum optimum concentration of camphorquinone in BISGMA/TEGDMA flowable composite is 1 % weight of  resin matrix, which allows adequate balance among degree of conversion, depth of cure, mechanical properties and  color characteristics of these materials. (Refer Hindawi, BioMed Research International, Volume 2018, Article ID  7921247, 10 pages).

- STUDIA UBB PHYSICA, Volume 61, (Lx1), 2, 2016, pp 720 Studied the photophysics of photo initiator Camphorquinone  bu using time-dependent Density Functional Theory method, i.e. DFT calculations. Adsorption and emission spectra of  photo initiator Camphorquinone had been calculated, the calculated electronic absorption energy at 484 nm was in  excellent agreement with available experimental data.

- Biomaterials 24 (2003) 2097-2103 studied the Camphorquinone/amine photo initiator system using blue light emitting  diodes. These results suggest that the new LED unit perform better than conventional halogen units with respect to light  energy.
6. HAZARD  CLASSIFICATION Camphorquinone is Non-hazardous Substance.
