Polyacid Modified Resin Composites, so-called Compomers, are very prospective materials for direct filling in restorative dentistry. They are composed from polymer matrix, reinforced with fluoro-alumino-silicate glass particles. Commercial compomers taken into consideration during the study were: Compoglass F (Ivoclar-Vivadent), Dyract AP (DeTrey Dentsply), Hytac (3M-ESPE), Glasiosite (VOCO), Freedom (SDI) and Luxat (DMG). Polymerization time of disc-shaped, light-cured specimens was 40 s according to manufacturer’s recommendations. These six samples of light-cured dental compomers were examined using photoelectron spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and Raman scattering.
