Influence of Solvent Polarity on Synthesis of Beta - Tricalcium Phosphate
Beta tricalcium phosphate (β - TCP) has been synthesized at relatively low temperature. The reaction product has been characterized by XRD, FT-IR and TEM. It is found that the polarity of synthesis media plays an important role in the formation of β - TCP crystal phase. In light of XRD, FT-IR and TEM results, the difference of reaction product between high and low polarity synthesis media might be attributed to carbonate groups, which might suppress the phase transformation process.
