The Calcium Orthophosphate Solubilities as Represented by a Model in Three Dimensions

Conference paper


The solubility behavior of hard tissues has almost exclusively been assessed by empirical means, e.g. by determining the amount of calcium or phosphate dissolved or by estimating the weight loss or gain. These methods circumvent the very complex solubility problems, and they may be grossly misleading.
