Abstract: Nano-sized pure α-tricalcium phosphate (α-TCP) fabricated by a novel synthesis approach shows great potential for a faster transformation into calcium-deficient hydroxyapatite (CDHA) than conventionally prepared α-TCP. In this work, amorphous tricalcium phosphate precursors were precipitated and treated with a solvent (water or ethanol), and dried (freeze-dried and oven-dried) before heating at 775 °C. Nanosized α-TCP powders were investigated for their phase composition and crystallinity, particle shape and size, reactivity and cellular biocompatibility. Reaction with water showed faster CDHA formation for freeze-dried powder, at 6 hours, compared to ethanol treated powders, whereas a higher biocompatibility was found for pure α-TCP.

Abstract: The aim of this study is to explore the effects of quenching and milling processing on setting property of calcium phosphate cement (CPC). For this purpose, non-quenched α-tricalcium phosphate (α-TCP) and quenched α-TCP were synthesized and their corresponding cement systems were prepared. The particle size of α-TCP powder was introduced as a variable. Then, setting properties of these CPC systems were estimated. By a comparison between non-quenched CPC and the quenched one, it is found that milling processing mainly influences the initial setting stage by decreasing reactant particle size whereas the quenching treatment affects the final setting stage by changing α-TCP content, which supports that CPC setting initially depends on the surface area of reactants and subsequently on the diffusion through the hydrated layer formed around the reactants.

Abstract: Calcium phosphates (CaPs): hydroxyapatite (HA) and TCP are common biomaterials used in orthopedic, dental and maxillofacial surgery as bone fillers and also as drug carriers. Studies of the β→α TCP transformation and formation of mono-, bi- or three-phase CaPs materials: βTCP-αTCP-HA are of principal importance. Stability of calcium phosphate ceramics depends on many factors. Our dynamic studies by high temperature XRD measurements showed that monoclinic αTCP was a considerably stable phase after its creation completed at 1200°C. Different phase composition was obtained in technological conditions.
