Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate in vitro elution of 2-Hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) from two different adhesive systems, used in two dual polymerized resin cements for bonding of ceramic restoration by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Methods: Twenty freshly extracted caries and restoration free molar teeth used in this study. Standardized Class I preparations were prepared in all teeth. A lithium disilicate based (IPS Empress Esthetic; Ivoclar) ceramic inlays were cemented with one of the dual polymerized resin cements (RelyX ARC; 3M ESPE or Nexus 2; Kerr) that have two different adhesive systems (Single Bond; 3M ESPE, Optibond Solo Plus; Kerr). After cementation, specimens were stored in 75% ethanol solution. HPLC was used to analyze the amount of HEMA in the solution (after 10 min, 1 h, 24 h, 3, 7, 14, and 21 days). Two-way analysis of variance and Tukey HSD tests were used to evaluate the results (p < 0.05). Results: There were statistically significant differences between adhesive systems according to the amount of released HEMA (p < 0.01) and also among time periods (p < 0.01). The amount of HEMA eluted from Optibond Solo Plus was significantly higher than Single Bond. The total amount of monomers was the highest after 21 days (p < 0.01). Conclusions: In the case of adhesive systems, Optibond Solo Plus showed the highest amount of HEMA. The amount of HEMA eluted from adhesive systems influenced by the time.
