Bone mineral is structurally related to the naturally occurring geologic mineral, hydroxyapatite (HA), differing in crystal size, perfection, and the nature of included impurities. Wide-angle X-ray diffraction (XRD) shows bone mineral diffraction maxima at the same positions as those of HA, but the peaks are less sharp and broader (Fig. 1). This broadening is attributable to the small size of the bone mineral crystals, and to the inclusion of vacancies and impurities (e.g., Mg, Sr, CO3 , HPO4… CONTINUE READING
