Hydroxyl-Terminated Poly(urethane acrylate) as a Soft Liner in Dental Applications: Synthesis and Characterization

Keskin, Selda
Usanmaz, Ali
Hydroxyl-terminated poly(urethane acrylate)s were synthesized for use in biomedical applications. Acrylate end capping via an interesterification reaction was successfully achieved with methacryloyl chloride addition to the hydroxyl ends of the polyurethane at low temperatures. 2,4-Toluene diisocyanate, 1,6-hexane diisocyanate, and methylene diphenyl diisocyanate were used as diisocyanates for urethane synthesis, and they were end-capped with methyl methacrylate and hydroxyethyl methacrylate. The nature of the monomers that we used had an effect on the thermal and morphological properties that were interpreted in terms of the level of hydrogen bonding and the degree of phase separation. The synthesized polymers were characterized by NMR, Fourier transform infrared/attenuated total reflectance spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetric analysis, and gel permeation chromatography. The number-average molecular weights of the poly(urethane acrylate)s were 2500-6000 g/mol. To use the polymer as a soft-liner material in denture applications, the residual isocyanate should not exist. In this study, we showed that a prepolymer without residual isocyanate could be synthesized. (C) 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 117: 458-466, 2010


Thermal stability and decomposition mechanism of poly(p-acryloyloxybenzoic acid and poly(p-methacryloyloxybenzoic acid) and their graft copolymers with polypropylene, Part II
Cetin, S.; Tincer, T. (Wiley, 2008-04-05)
Thermal stability and decomposition mechanism of poly(p-acryloyloxybenzoic) acid (PABA), p-methacryloyloxybenzoic acid (PMBA), and their graft coproducts of PP were studied by differential scanning calorimetry, direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry, and TG/IR system, combined thermogravimetric analyzer, and FTIR spectrometer. The homopolymers and corresponding grafts were found to be stable in nitrogen atmosphere but started to decompose under atmospheric conditions when heated above 230 degrees C. PABA and PA...
Polymerization of 2-hydroxyethyl acrylate in bulk and solution by chemical initiator and by ATRP method
Vargun, E; Usanmaz, Ali (Wiley, 2005-09-01)
In this study, 2-hydroxyethyl acrylate (HEA) was polymerized to obtain polymers that can be used as hydrogel and copolymerized for biomedical applications. Bulk, solution, and atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) techniques at different temperatures were applied. The polymerization in bulk form was carried out in vacuum and in open atmosphere. The polymerization curves showed autoacceleration mechanism and the limiting conversion was 100%. The polymers obtained were insoluable in most common solvents...
Thermal characterization of glycidyl azide polymer (GAP) and GAP-based binders for composite propellants
Selim, K; Özkar, Saim; Yılmaz, Levent (Wiley, 2000-07-18)
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) were used to investigate the thermal behavior of glycidyl azide polymer (GAP) and GAP-based binders, which are of potential interest for the development of high-performance energetic propellants. The glass transition temperature (T-g) and decomposition temperature (T-d) of pure GAP were found to be -45 and 242 degrees C, respectively. The energy released during decomposition (Delta H-d) was measured as 485 cal/g. The effect of th...
Conduction mechanism in H-type polysiloxane-polypyrrole block copolymers
BOZKURT, AYHAN; Parlak, Mehmet; Ercelebi, C; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Wiley, 2002-07-05)
Conducting polymers of polysiloxane-polypyrrole were Synthesized by electropolymerization of the pyrrole monomer through pyrrole moieties in N-pyrrole-terminated polysiloxanes. Sodium paratoluene sulfonate was used as the electrolyte. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used to determine the surface morphology of the films. The room-temperature conductivity values of the films were found to be in the range of 1.9-4.4 x 10(-4) (Omega cm)(-1), depending on the supporting electrolyte concentration. The temp...
Polypyrrole grafts synthesized via electrochemical polymerization
Balci, N; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Akbulut, Ural; Stanke, D; Hallensleben, ML (Informa UK Limited, 1998-01-01)
Electrically conducting polypyrrole grafts with poly[(methyl meth acrylate)-co-(2-(N-pyrrolyl) ethyl methacrylate)] (PMMA-co-PEMA) were synthesized by constant potential electrolysis. Cyclic Voltammetry, DSC, TGA, SEM and elemental analysis were used in order to characterize the free standing films. Conductivities of the polymers were measured by a four-probe technique.
