Abstract Neutron diffraction studies of mineralized tissue show a close relationship between the wet state equatorial diffraction spacing and wet tissue density expressable as a second-order polynomial. The molecular fractional shrinkage when the tissue is dried shows a straight line dependence on wet tissue density with a correlation of 0.98. Since the dry state equatorial diffraction spacing is much less than for the corresponding wet state, even in fully mineralized bone, the collagen… CONTINUE READING
