Re: deplasticize

From:Gayle Callis <>

If it has any GMA in it, you may be stuck, it cannot be removed, in fact, I
have never been able to remove PMMA from the outside polymerized bone
blocks,  but the inside of bone will remain as is.  Corrected bubbling this
way.  Grind away as much plastic as possible, then immerse blocks into
methyl methacrylate monomer (pure) to dissolve away the PMMA from around
bone specimen, then reembed very carefully.
