Arsenite ions were a different story, because although bezoar stone removed them the brushite moiety was ineffective.
Studied XRD pattern of PCL/HAp composites, it was reveal a strong calcium deficiency in the inorganic phase generated inside the polymer solution that is brushite (CaHP[O.
Uric acid (UA) stones included uric acid dihydrate, while carbonate apatite and brushite were grouped as CaP stones.
Further in vitro and in vivo studies are warranted to investigate whether OCP forming CPCs may have greater osteoconductivity than CPCs that form HA, carbonated HA, Ca-deficient HA, or brushite as the major phase.
A ruler is provided to help estimate the percentages of calcium oxalate, calcium phosphate (either brushite or apatite), struvite, and ammonium urate.
Depending on laboratory availability, additional parameters, such as potassium, phosphorus, sulphate, ammonia and urea nitrogen, can be requested to allow the calculations of supersaturations for calcium oxalate, uric acid and brushite (calcium phosphate).
CPCs of different compositions can form different end products such as hydroxyapatite (HA), octacalcium phosphate, and dicalcium phosphate dihydrate (DCPD), also known as brushite.
In both cases the hardening and formation of a solid body are driven by the precipitation of small hydrates with a suitable surface energy, Katoite and Gibbsite for CAC and Apatite or Brushite for CPC.
