Determination of the bone-crystallites distribution function by X ray diffraction


It is considered that meaningful interpretation of the physical properties of bone is possible only when the crystalline quality of bone is also known quantitatively. From the crystalline structure and the X-ray diffraction photograph of bone, it is concluded that the bone crystallites, i.e. the collagen-hydroxyapatite composite crystallites, are oriented… (More)
