Abstract


One alpha-tricalcium phosphate (alpha-TCP) powder was either calcined at 500 degrees C to obtain fully crystalline alpha-TCP or milled for different durations to obtain alpha-TCP powders containing various amounts of X-ray amorphous tricalcium phosphate (ATCP). These powders containing between 0 and 71 wt.% ATCP and up to 2.0 +/- 0.1 wt.% beta-TCP as minor phase were then hydrated in 0.1 M Na2HPO4 aqueous solution and the resulting heat flows were measured by isothermal calorimetry. Additionally, the evolution of the phase composition during hydration was determined by in situ XRD combined with the G-factor method, an external standard method which facilitates the indirect quantification of amorphous phases. Maximum ATCP hydration was reached after about 1 h, while that of crystalline alpha-TCP hydration occurred between 4 and 11 h, depending on the ATCP content. An enthalpy of formation of -4065 6 kJ/mol (T = 23 degrees C) was calculated for ATCP (Ca-3(PO4)(2)), while for crystalline alpha-TCP (alpha-Ca-3(PO4)(2)) a value of -4113 +/- 6 kJ/mol (T= 23 degrees C) was determined.
