Paper Title:
Influence of Alginate on Precipitation of Calcium Phosphates
  Abstract

Calcium phosphates are widely used in medicine and dentistry. However, synthesis of these substances through precipitation methods still presents problems regarding reproducibility. Alginate is a polymer extracted from brown algae, whose monomers are D-mannuronic and L-guluronic acids, and is suitable for biomedical applications. The aim of this paper is to investigate how the poly-ionic nature of alginate affects phase composition of calcium phosphate obtained through a precipitation method.
