Incorporation of antibacterial agent derived deep eutectic solvent into an active dental composite.

OBJECTIVE To incorporate an antibacterial agent derived deep eutectic solvent (DES) into a dental resin composite, and investigate the resulting mechanical properties and antibacterial effects. METHOD The DES was derived from benzalkonium chloride (BC) and acrylic acid (AA) and was incorporated into the dental resin composite through rapid mixing. A three… CONTINUE READING
