In this work is presented the use of Photoacoustic as an alternative technique to monitor the curing process of odontological materials, emphasizing the resins chemically activated (RCA). Through photoacoustic measurements, it is possible to study optical and thermal properties of samples, and to obtain information on the characteristic times involved in the curing processes. For this study the samples were analyzed to evaluate the polymerization of the RCA for different temperature. The results obtained show the viability of applying the Photoacoustic Techinques to monitor the polyermization kinetic of odontological resins, allowing for a qualitative and quantitative interpretation.
