Brushite was synthesized by precipitation of calcium chloride (CaCl(2)) and sodium phosphate monobasic (Na(2)HPO(4)) dried in vacuum and monetite was obtained from this brushite by sonication with a frequency of 90kHz at 500W for 90min. Monetite itself was also transformed in Ca(H(2)PO(4))(2)·H(2)O, monocalcium phosphate monohydrate (MCPM), by sonication with a frequency of 90kHz at 500W for 60min followed by lyophilization. The MCPM was sonicated and lyophilized by three times more until reach… CONTINUE READING
