Average (a) density, (b) Young’s modulus, and (c) maximum compressive strength for bone cement samples with various contents of castor oil in the NTG and the PCG. The listed properties decreased with increasing castor oil content. However, preparation temperature (room temperature or precooling) had no significant effect () on these properties. . .
