  • In this work, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) has been used to determine the size and morphology of bone mineral crystals obtained from hydrazine-deproteinated parietal bone and femur of Wistar rats aged 15 days, 1 month and 1 year. Apart from the Scanning Electron Microscopy study, crystal size was also determined by X-ray diffractometry, using the Debye- Scherrer equation. Analyzing the results obtained and those reported in the literature for isolated crystals, it is possible to evaluate… CONTINUE READING
