The thermal interaction of Kovdor apatite, calcite, dolomite and forsterite with calcium polyphosphate up to 1200 °C were studied by chemical, thermal (under dynamic and quasiisothermal and isobaric conditions), X-ray, electronmicroscopic and chromatographic methods. It was found that the accompanying minerals of apatite react with calcium polyphosphate at lower temperature in comparison with apatite, complicating the process of thermal defluorination of papatite.
