The use of the BisGMA as base monomer in dental composites has been questioned because of bisphenol A (BPA) is used as raw material in its synthesis, and BPA possess estrogenic potential associated to several health problems. This study describes the synthesis of the trimethacrylate tris(4-hydroxyphenyl)methane triglycidyl methacrylate (TTM) monomer and evaluate its effect when used as base monomer in the formulation of experimental photopolymerizable composite resins.
