Volume 93 Issue 1, Pages 1 – 14 Katsuyuki MatsunagaPublished Online: Dec 21 2009 11:58AMDOI: 10.1111/j.1551-2916.2009.03485.x ABSTRACT Vacancies, impurities, and foreign ions dissolving in calcium phosphate bioceramics play an important role in the biological properties of the materials. However, little is known about the thermodynamic stability of the defects. In this regard, point defects in…
