Abstract

In vitro dissolution of calcium sulfate was carried out, in order to understand the interaction between calcium sulfate and body fluids. For the study, calcium sulfate pellets were prepared by mixing calcium sulfate hemihydrate with distilled water. It was observed that the calcium sulfate precipiate is a carbonate-containing hydroxyapatite similar to biologic apatite found in bones and teeth. The results show that because the high rate of dissolution of calcium sulfate, the precipiate forms very rapidly and flakes away as the surface dissolves beneath it.
