Dissolution rates and apparent solubilities for synthetic hydroxyapatite in acetate buffers containing phosphate and strontium ions in the range of 10-3 to 10-2 M were determined under various pH and buffer conditions. Critical examination of the role of strontium with a physical model suggests that a calcium-strontium apatite surface complex may govern the driving force of the dissolution reaction.
