Novel Bioadhesives for Restorative Dentistry
The objective of this study was to develop new adhesive formulations based on 2,2-bis[4-(2- methacryloxyprop-1-oxy) phenyl] propane (CH3-BisGMA) aiming to obtain high double bond conversion (DC) even in the presence of radical scavengers and monomers with acidic groups. NMR, EPR spectroscopy and spatially-resolved 1H Stray-Field MRI observations enabled to study the influence of the composition in DC, free radical concentration, reactivity of the monomers and volumetric contraction.
