SummaryAbout 11±1% of the carbonate ions in a human tooth enamel specimen (dense fraction, sp. g.>2.95) were found to be in the A-sites, replacing hydroxyl ions. The determination was made with a difference infrared spectrometry technique utilizing both tooth enamel and a reconstituted biological apatite with a known amount of replacement of hydroxyl by carbonate ions.
