Abstract

Chelate-setting calcium-phosphate cements (CPCs) have been developed using inositol phosphate (IP6) as a chelating agent. However, the compressive strength of the CPC fabricated from a commercially available Hydroxyapatite (HAp) powder was approximately 10 MPa. In this study, we miniaturized HAp particles as a starting powder to improve the compressive strength of chelate-setting CPCs and examined the adsorption properties of IP6 onto HAp powders. An HAp powder with a specific surface area (SSA) higher than 200 m2/g (HApHS) was obtained by ultrasonic irradiation for 1 min in a wet synthesis process, greatly improving the SSA (214 m2/g) of the commercial powder without ultrasonic irradiation. The HApHS powder was found to be a B-type carbonate-containing HAp in which the phosphate groups in apatite were replaced by carbonate groups. Owing to the high SSA, the HApHS powder also showed high IP6 adsorption capacity. The adsorption phenomena of IP6 to our HApHS and commercially available Hap powders were found to follow the Freundlich and Langmuir models, respectively. We found that IP6 adsorbs on the HApHS powder by both physisorption and chemisorption. The fine HapHS powder with a high SSA is a novel raw powder material, expected to improve the compressive strength of chelate-setting CPCs.
