Formation of Hydroxyapatite Nanosized and other Apatites by Electrolysis Process
We report how a simple electrolysis reaction of Ca/EDTA/PO43- homogeneous solutions, produces nanosized apatites of calcium, strontium, and doped calcium apatites as solid precipitates. Preliminary studies changing the current density and initial pH demonstrate the possibility of controlling crystallinity and sizes. All being in the nanosize range.
