Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the level of residual monomer in acrylic denture base materials having different polymerization properties. The investigation included a conventional‐type acrylic cured under heat and pressure, as well as a pour‐type resin polymerized by an injection‐moulding technique at room temperature and under pressure. It was found that the residual monomer content ranged from 0·22–0·54% in pour‐type resin, and from 0·23–0·52% in routinely used resins when the specimens were analysed by high performance liquid chromatography. These findings revealed that there were no significant differences between the two types of acrylic in terms of their residual monomer content. Copyright © 1991, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
