Polymerisation shrinkage is widely recognised as a major drawback of resin based dental restoratives. Bis-GMA is often employed as the principal dimethacrylate monomer. Due to its high viscosity, Bis-GMA is normally mixed with large proportions of low viscosity glycol dimethacrylates....

A series of different methacrylate monomers (with either 1 or 2.5% dimethyl-p-toluidine, DMPT) was gelled with poly(ethyl methacrylate) powder (containing benzoyl peroxide) thus forming a room temperature curing system. When doped with 5.625% chlorhexidine diacetate the release from the tetrahydrofurfuryl...

A polymer system consisting of poly(ethyl methacrylate)/tetrahydrofurfuryl methacrylate (PEMA/THFMA) was investigated as a biomaterial for cartilage repair using chondrocyte culture. The PEMA/THFMA system and Thermanox control were shown to support chondrocytes seeded directly onto the surface for up to 28...

The self-diffusion coefficients for water in a series of copolymers of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate, HEMA, and tetrahydrofurfuryl methacrylate, THFMA, swollen with water to their equilibrium states have been studied at 310 K using PFG-NMR. The self-diffusion coefficients calculated from the Stejskal-Tanner...

The room temperature polymerising system poly(ethyl methacrylate) (PEM)/tetrahydrofurfuryl methcrylate (THFM) has been modified by replacing some of the THFM by hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and hydroxypropyl methacrylate (HPM), respectively. In both cases, the equilibrium uptake of the parent system is reduced...
