Abstract

The effect of storage temperature, time, benzoyl peroxide (BPO) concentration, gamma irradiation and antibiotic inclusion on the spontaneous polymerization of BPO containing solution bone cement was investigated using isothermal differential scanning calorimetry (Iso-DSC). Elevated temperature was maintained by placing the cements in a glass vial and immersing the glass vial in a water bath maintained at the experimental temperature. The shelf-life behavior of BPO containing solution cements was governed by storage temperature and initiation chemistries. The results show that the presence of antibiotic and gamma irradiated polymethyl methacrylates (PMMA) does not affect the shelf-life behavior of BPO containing solution cement.
