Methyl methacrylate monomer-polymer equilibrium in solid polymer.


OBJECTIVE Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) is commonly processed in dentistry by thermally initiating the free-radical polymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA). Residual MMA, a tissue irritant, is a concern. The concentration of MMA ([MMA]) versus time and temperature was studied to identify optimum processing conditions. MATERIALS AND METHODS One… (More)
