Biphasic tricalcium phosphate (BTCP) powders composed of α-tricalcium phosphate (α-TCP) and β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) were prepared using amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) precursor after heat treatment at 800oC. The in vitro dissolution behavior of the powders was examined after soaked in 0.1M NaAc-HAc buffer solution for different times. It was revealed that the Ca2+ and PO4 3- concentration, and pH value of the BTCP-soaked solution are higher than those of the α-TCP- and β-TCP-soaked solutions. The dissolution behavior of BTCP powders was explained. The specific dissolution behavior of BTCP powders can widen the biodegradation range of calcium phosphate family.
