Influence of Alginate on Precipitation of Calcium Phosphates

Abstract:

Article Preview

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.
