  • Publication number: 20200392273
    Abstract: Disclosed is a network made by a method of: polymerizing a silyl-containing acrylate or methacrylate monomer, optionally copolymerized with a second acrylate or methacrylate monomer. The silyl-containing monomer has two or more acrylate or methacrylate groups. The second monomer contains no silyl groups. The second monomer comprises a urethane group, an ether group, an ester group, a urea group, an amide group, a thioether group, a hydroxyl group, or is an alkyl acrylate. The copolymerization is via radical-initiated polymerization of the acrylate or methacrylate groups. The network may be degradable upon exposure to a fluoride salt, an acid, or a base.
