Available online 24 January 2008.

This article has been retracted at the request of the Editor-in-Chief. Please see Elsevier Policy on Article Withdrawal
Reason: The Editors of International Journal of Adhesion and Adhesives have noticed that two nearly identical papers, authored by Dr Zeynep Duymus Yesil and co-workers, have been published in the journal. These are: Evaluation of the bond strength of different composite resins to porcelain and metal alloy,Int. J. Adhes. Adhes., 27 (2007) 258–262 by Zeynep Duymus Yesil, Serpil Karaoglanoglu, M. Samil Akyil, Nilgun Seven, and the present paper.
The present article has been  retracted at the request of the Editors as it is essentially a duplicate of the 2007 paper that has already been published. One of the conditions of submission of a paper for publication is that authors declare explicitly that the paper is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. As such, the 2009 article represents a breach of this condition. We apologize to the readers of the journal that this was not detected during the submission process.
