Inspite the extensive use of Polymethly-methacrylate (PMMA) in dentistry, complications associated with their inherent property related limitations and processing have been documented.1 One of the problems associated with acrylic dentures is the presence of residual monomers following fabrication.2 Studies have shown that polymerization of methylmethacrylate is never quite complete and despite long curing cycles of polymerization minimal amounts of un-polymerized residual monomer can always be found.3 Mechanical and biological consequences of un-polymerized residual monomers have also been studied extensively.4,5
