Preparation of Monetite (CaHPO_4) with Hexagonally Packed Mesoporous Structure by a Sol-Gel Method Using Cationic Surfactant Aggregates as a Template
We first-successfully fabricated mesoporous calcium phosphates by a regular sol–gel method using cationic surfactant aggregates as a template. Low-angle XRD and TEM observation indicated that a product included hexagonally packed mesoporous structure. Wide-angle XRD and FT-IR observation identified the product as monetite (CaHPO<SUB>4</SUB>), which is one of calcium phosphates.
