Synthesis and characterization of two novel antibacterial dendritic methacrylate-based dental monomers
This study explores the synthesis and characterization of two novel antibacterial dendritic methacrylate-based dental monomers. For this purpose, two dendritic esters have been synthesized via condensation reaction and then reacted with methacryloyl chloride to afford methacrylate-end caped dendritic esters. These compounds are subsequently converted to quaternary ammonium ﬂuoride monomers (QAFMs) with decyl substituted side chain to produce two novel antibacterial dendreticdental monomers. The chemical structures of synthesized samples have been characterized using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR) spectroscopies.The obtained monomers can be used to replace 2,2-bis[4-(2-hydroxy-3-methacryloyloxypropyl)-phenyl]propane (Bis-GMA) as the base monomer of universal resin-based dental composites in the presence of a diluting monomer (e.g.,triethyleneglycoldimethacrylate; TEGDMA), mainly due to their superior characteristics such as multifunctionalities as well as antibacterial activities.
