      A study is described in which six metallic compounds identified in a previous pilot experiment were tested as pulp-capping agents using the exposed rat molar. Barium sulfate, calcium carbonate, cupric oxide, ferric oxide, and heavy magnesium oxide gave poor results. Stannic oxide gave more favorable results and is being studied further.
