Deep eutectic solvents (DESs), based upon mixtures of a variety of ammonium salts – the active fillers – and hydrogen bond donors containing acrylic acids and acrylamides, are capable of sustaining frontal polymerization (FP) with full conversion. For instance, after FP of acrylic acid-lidocaine hydrochloride DES, the lidocaine hydrocloride can be released in a controlled fashion.
