Mineralogical-geochemical study of the anionic competition effect on the octacalcium phosphate reaction into fluorapatite

The unstable compound octacalcium phosphate (OCP) is one of the crystalline precursors of the apatite mineral series composed by hydroxyapatite, fluorapatite and chlorapatite. The feature of OCP to react into apatite, depending on the media conditions, has been mainly exploited for biomedical applic...
