Structural changes and biological responsiveness of an injectable and mouldable monetite bone graft generated by a facile synthetic method.

Abstract

Brushite (dicalcium phosphate dihydrate) and monetite (dicalcium phosphate anhydrous) are of considerable interest in bone augmentation owing to their metastable nature in physiological fluids. The anhydrous form of brushite, namely monetite, has a finer microstructure with higher surface area, strength and bioresorbability, which does not transform to the… (More)
