CHEMICAL NATURE OF SALTS FROM BONES AND TEETH AND OF TRICALCIUM PHOSPHATE PRECIPITATES

Abstract

ACCORDING to recent papers1, it seems that much confusion still prevails concerning the physical and chemical properties of tricalcium phosphates. Experimental researches, performed during the War, enabled us, however, to elucidate many difficulties in this field and to demonstrate our misinterpretation of many previous experimental results. Our researches originally dealt particularly with the molecular nature of salts from bone and teeth, but were later extended to the nature of tricalcium phosphate precipitates.
