The purpose of this study was to use the concept of metastable equilibrium solubility (MES) to describe the anomalous solubility behavior of carbonated apatite (CAP) in the presence of solution strontium. A CAP sample (4.8 wt% CO3, synthesized at 70°C) was prepared by precipitation. Baseline MES distributions were determined in a series of 0.1 M acetate(More)
UNLABELLED Using solution strontium and pH as independent variables, the metastable equilibrium solubility (MES) behavior of two carbonated apatite (CAP) samples has been examined, a high-crystallinity CAP (properties expected to be similar to dental enamel) and a low-crystallinity CAP (properties expected to be similar to bone mineral). CAP samples were(More)
This study was on the influence of the mineral phase crystallite microstrain (CM) on the nature of the surface complex (SC) governing the metastable equilibrium solubility (MES) behavior of carbonated apatites (CAPs) in aqueous acidic media (0.10 M acetate buffers, with and without fluoride, 0.50 M ionic strength maintained with NaCl). The MES behavior of a(More)
