Nanoapatites are apatites consisting of nanometer size crystals. The commercial calcium phosphate cements set by the precipitation of nanoapatitic calcium phosphates in the range 1.5 < or = Ca/P < 1.8. In this study it is shown that a continuum of nanoapatites can precipitate in the range 0.8 < Ca/P< or = 1.5. In order to be formed these nanoapatites need to incorporate K+ ions. In addition they can incorporate some Na+ ions. Upon immersion in aqueous solutions these nanoapatites loose… CONTINUE READING
