Paper Title:
Synthesis and Evaluation of Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP) by Various Synthesis Methods
  Abstract

Amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) was prepared by a sol-gel method from Ca alkoxide synthesized with Ca metal and ethanol in N2 atmosphere. As-prepared products by sol-gel method were spherical ACP particles of approximately 3 to 10 nm in diameter before heat-treatments. The results from Ca-K edge of as-synthesized ACP showed only one peak around 0.2 nm, suggesting the presence of the first neighbor of Ca in Ca-PO4 cluster.
