  author={Jaime G{\'o}mez-Morales and Michele Iafisco and Jos{\'e} Manuel Delgado-L{\'o}pez and St{\'e}phanie Sarda and Christophe Drouet},
Nanocrystalline calcium phosphate apatites constitute the main inorganic part of hard tissues, and a growing focus is devoted to prepare synthetic analogs, so-called “biomimetic”, able to precisely mimic the morphological and physico-chemical features of biological apatite compounds. Both from fundamental and applied viewpoints, an accurate characterization of nanocrystalline apatites, including their peculiar surface features, and a deep knowledge of crystallization aspects are prerequisites… CONTINUE READING
