Preparation of octacalcium phosphate from calcium carbonate powder
- 190 Downloads
We have studied a process for the preparation of apatite precursors through calcium carbonate conversion into dicalcium phosphate dihydrate, which is then hydrolyzed to octacalcium phosphate. The process enables the preparation of both phase-pure octacalcium phosphate and calcium phosphate mixtures with variable dicalcium phosphate dihydrate : octacalcium phosphate and hydroxyapatite : octacalcium phosphate ratios.
