Heats of Solution of Apatites, Human Enamel and Dicalcium-Phosphate in Dilute Hydrochloric Acid

  • Robert G. Craig
  • Hillar M. Rootare


The solubility of hydroxyapatite and dental enamel in water and various buffered solutions has been studied extensively by many investigators and only a few will be listed in the references1–12. Heats of wetting and heats of immersion have been measured for water on synthetic hydroxyapatite and ground tooth structure by Tsuchitani, et al.13,14 and Brauer and Huget15,16. The latter authors17,18, as did Pitt19, studied the degree of surface modification produced by various ions and functional groups in an aqueous environment by measuring the heats of immersion.
