CENTENARO, Carolina C et al. Influence of addition of 2-[3-(2H-benzotriazol-2-YL)- 4-hydroxyphenyl] ethyl methacrylate to an experimental adhesive system. Acta odontol. latinoam. [online]. 2015, vol.28, n.1, pp.72-78. ISSN 1852-4834.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the addition of 2-[3-(2HBenzotriazol- 2-yl)-4-hydroxyphenyl]ethyl methacrylate (BTAM) to an experimental adhesive resin. An experimental base adhesive resin was formulated with BisGMA, TEGDMA and HEMA, to which BTAM was added at 1, 2.5 and 5%, in weight. One group with no addition was used as control. The experimental adhesives were evaluated for antibacterial potential (against Streptococcus mutans), degree of conversion with FTIR, softening in solvent and microRaman interface analyses. Data were analyzed by Kruskal-Wallis, paired t test and ANOVA and Tukey, considering a 5% level of significance. The results showed antibacterial activity of 5% BTAM against S. mutans (p<0.05), however, no difference was found among BTAM groups (p> 0.05). The results of degree of conversion and softening of solvent showed no statistical difference between BTAM and control groups (p>0.05). The addition of 5% BTAM showed higher antibacterial activity than the negative control, and copolymerization with comonomer blend of adhesive resin and BTAM was detected at the dentin/ adhesive interface.
