Abstract: Objectives. This study examined the effect of chlorhexidine (CHX) content on degree of conversion (DC) and E-modulus of experimental adhesive blends. The hypothesis tested was that increasing concentrations of CHX result in decreased DC and E-modulus in relation to adhesive hydrophilicity. Methods. Experimental adhesive blends with increasing hydrophilicity R2 (70% bisGMA, 28.75% TEGDMA); R3 (70% BisGMA, 28.75% HEMA); R4 (40% BisGMA, 30% TCDM, 28.75% TEGDMA); R5 (40% BisGMA, 30% BisMP, 28.75% HEMA) and different CHX concentrations (I and 5%) were analyzed. 5% CHX could not be dissolved in R2. A differential scanning calorimeter was used to measure the DC of resin blends. Photopolymerized disks of the experimental comonomer mixtures (n = 10/gp) were used to measure the E-modulus of each specimen using a biaxial flexure test. Data were analyzed with two-way ANOVA (resin type and CHX concentration) and Tukey's post hoc test. Results. The addition of 1% CHX did not significantly alter the DC of R2 and R3. Significant decrease in R3 DC values was observed when 5% CHX was added. CHX significantly increased the DC of R4 and RS. 1% CHX reduced the E-modulus of all resins (p < 0.05) except for R2, in which the E-modulus was significantly increased (p < 0.05). 5% CHX significantly reduced the E-modulus of resins R3 to RS (p < 0.05). Significance. In conclusion, increasing concentrations of CHX dissolved in resin blends had little adverse effect on DC but decreased the E-modulus 27-48% compared to controls. Solvation of CHX in ethanol prior to incorporation of CHX into R2 may permit higher CHX concentrations without lower polymer stiffness. (C) 2009 Academy of Dental Materials.
