In this study, effects of the degree of dissociation of acids on the hydrolysis rate of methoxy group in γ-methacryloxypropyltrimethoxysilane (γ-MPS) and the adsorption characteristics of γ-MPS on ceramic surfaces were studied using acetic, phosphoric, and hydrochloric acids. Hydrolytic stability of γ-MPS adsorption layer at the resin-ceramic interface was thus examined. 29 Si NMR observations of acidactivated γ-MPS and contact angle measurements following ceramic surface silanization were

Increase in the degree of dissociation of the acid used increased the hydrolysis rate of methoxy group in γ-MPS, but lowered the contact angle to the silanized ceramic surface. Decrease in the contact angle increased the hydrolytic stability of γ-MPS adsorption layer.
