Application of Fluorescent Molecules as In-Situ Probes of Bone Cement Cure

Abstract

This paper describes the fluorescence behavior of anthracene and Re(CO)3CIL, (where L=4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthroline) in a commercial bone cement. New in these studies is the observation that the reduction in intermolecular quenching accompanying increasing polymer concentration allows the recovery of normal fluorescence to be correlated with a sample's increased viscosity. This is the first report of fluorescence recovery due to the impedance of quenching being used to monitor polymerization processes.
