The photopolymerization rate enhancement observed when the diacrylamide dental adhesive monomer DEBAAP is copolymerized with a monomer bearing phosphonic acid moieties to improve adhesive strength and durability is explained by an increase of the polarity of the polymerizing medium. Indeed, the effect is small with monomers bearing phosphonate moieties, but is observed when a nonpolymerizable organic phosphonic acid is present in the polymerizing medium.
