Abstract

A new structural model for octacalcium hydrogenpentakis(phosphate) succinate pentahydrate, Ca8H(PO4)5(C2H4·(COO)2)·5H2O, a reaction product of octacalcium dihydrogenhexakis(phosphate) pentahydrate, Ca8H2(PO4)6·5H2O, OCP, and succinate ions, is proposed on the basis of similarities in the unit cell dimensions and structures of OCP and calcium succinate trihydrate. This model can be used to develop information on the mode of incorporation of dicarboxylate ions into OCP and hydroxyapatite and its possible effects on biological mineralization processes.
