(47) It is also possible that the decrease of planktonic bacteria occurred due to the contact of the cells in broth with the surface of resin sealants, (44) similar to a previous study with antibacterial monomers (quaternary ammonium compounds) that copolymerized with the base resin, inducing planktonic bacteria reduction in broth around the polymerized samples.
Compared with PAM, the characteristic absorption peak of PAD was shown at 956 [cm.sup.-1], which resulted from quaternary ammonium in the monomer DMC [30], thereby showing that the PAD was successfully copolymerized by AM and DMC.
