On the mechanism of strontium incorporation into calcium phosphates
MetadataShow full item record
The results of coprecipitation and sorption of strontium by amorphous and crystalline hydroxyapatite are presented. Coprecipitation experiments, performed over a wide range of experimental conditions, have confirmed that strontium is incorporated into hydroxyapatite by the isomorphous substitution of calcium. Adsorption on the surface of well crystallized hydroxyapatite follows a Langmuir adsorption isotherm with a monolayer capacity of 1.5x10(-4) mol g(-1).
