Abstract

An ionic polymer has been defined by Holliday (1) as a polymer which contains both covalent and ionic bonds in its structure. In the form of ionic polymer hydrogels, derived from polyelectrolytes by chemical gelation, they have found application in dentistry. The oldest class is the alginate impression material which is formed by a double decomposition reaction between sodium alginate and the salt of a divalent metal. Other classes are the ionomer and polycarboxylate cements.
