Abstract

The feasibility of preparing carbonate apatite monolith from calcium hydroxide powder, carbon dioxide and ammonium hydrogen phosphate was evaluated. It was observed that carbonate apatite was the most stable phase thermodynamically when calcium, phosphate and carbonate ions were present. The coralline apatite was prepared by the hydrothermal treatment of coral that was aragonite in the presence of phosphate ions. The method was found to allow the formation carbonate apatite with good carbonate content, and with similar crystallinity to that of human bone.
