Composite materials based on dental acrylic plastic and chitosan

L. A. Yakovishin, E. V. Tkachenko


Chitosan and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) composites were synthesized by polymerization with heating and mechanochemical method. The obtained polymer composites were analyzed by the ATR FT-IR spectroscopy method. The presence of intermolecular hydrogen bonds and hydrophobic interactions in formation of PMMA and chitosan polymer composites was shown.
