The question of whether the apatite crystals of bone contain hydroxyl groups was explored using magic angle spinning, proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and resolution enhanced Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The powdered bone samples were heated at 300 degrees C in air, in CO2 at 4 bar atmosphere, and at 300 degrees C in air and… CONTINUE READING
