The degree of conversion in photo-activated resin composites can be affected by temperature. A new type of composite, called nanoparticle resin composite, has been developed for dentistry. This study aimed to investigate how temperature variation of the nanoparticle Ceram-X TM Duo resin composite before polymerization affects the degree of conversion.The study used 30 cylindrical specimens, each 6mm in diameter and 3mm in thickness, divided into three treatment groups: 5°C, 25°C, and 60°C. Each group contained five polymerized specimens and five unpolymerized specimens.The degree of conversion was measured using FTIR with 45 scans, a resolution of 4 [1/cm], and an analyzed wavelength of 500-4000 [1/cm].Statistical analysis was performed using the One-Way ANOVA test and Tukey. The results showed that temperature significantly influenced the degree of conversion.In conclusion, this study demonstrates that temperature variation before polymerization impacts the degree of conversion of dental nano particle resin composites.
