During polymerization of dimethacrylate monomers employed in dental materials, the gel effect leads to entrapment of radicals and unreacted monomers in the crosslinked network, affecting physico-mechanical properties and the biocompatibility. Reported here is a study of the effect of the resin composition, irradiation time and storage time of some new light-cured dental composites upon the free propagating radical concentration, using Electron Spin Resonance (ESR). Six new experimental dental light-cured composites based on the Bis-GMA monomer – 2,2-bis[4-(2-hydroxy-3 methacryloyloxypropoxy)phenyl]-propane, on the corresponding Bis-GMA dimer, 2-
hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and on 1,6-Bis-[2 methacryloyloxyethoxycarbonyl-amino]-2,4,4-trmethylhexane (UDMA) have been employed, with three different photoinitiator systems. The hybrid filler consisted of quartz, strontium/zirconium glass and fluoro-hydroxyapatite. ESR signals developed under visible light irradiation during polymerization were measured, with intensities dependent on the time of irradiation. These signals decay very slowly in time – on the scale of days or longer.
