Twelve methacrylamide derivatives containing carboxyl and phenyl groups have been evaluated as adhesives for calcium metaphosphate ceramic, a promising but hard-to-adhere cast ceramic restoration material. Although methacrylamide monomers having a carboxyl group showed low adhesive tensile strength for the ceramic, contrary to the glycidyl methacrylate derivatives, the monomer having neighboring two carboxyl groups at the phenyl ring exhibited quite high adhesion. Moreover, the monomer proved to retain high adhesion strength for the surface-etched ceramic for a long period of time even in water and would thus be suitable for practical clinical applications. © 1994 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
