Nowadays, uptaking the macromolecular synthetic products in medicine and therapy must fullfil the complexity of the biological issues that result from using them. We aimed to embed vitamin B12 (used as template) in acrylic crosslinked synthesized copolymers in order to treat oral aphthae and also for prophylactic purpose through its release in pacient saliva and its reinclusion in dentures by imersing them in vitamin B12. Structural characteristics of researched polymer indicates that a large number of factors that contribute to complex sites with affinity for the template does exist. It was noticed that the polymers obtained in the presence of vitamin B12 have a selective memory, retaining preferentially produces with similar structure and especially the template.
