Paper Title:
Setting Kinetics Observation of a Brushite Cement by FTIR and DSC

Time resolved infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and isothermal differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) were used for the first time to monitor the chemical reaction in a fast setting brushite forming calcium phosphate cement. It was found that the reaction percentage at a given time was dependent on temperature and not powder to liquid (P/L) ratio. Both methods showed that there was, within the temperature range investigated, a single autocatalytic like setting reaction within the cement paste. Final conversion of the reactants was found to be unaffected by temperature and P/L ratio.
