Abstract  

A microcalorimeter (Setaram c-80) was used to study the thermokinetics of the hydration process of calcium phosphate cement (CPC), a biocompatible biomaterial used in bone repair. The hydration enthalpy was determined to be 35.8 J g–1 at 37.0°C when up to 80 mg CPC was dissolved in 2 mL of citric buffer. In the present study, parameters related to time constants of the calorimeter were obtained by fitting the recorded thermal curves with the function θ=Ae–?t(1– e–?2t). The real thermogenetic curves were then retrieved with Tian function and the transformation rate of the hydration process of CPC was found to follow the equation α=1–[1–(0.0075t)3]3. The microstructures of the hydrated CPC were examined by scanning electron microscopy. The nano-scale flake microstructures are due to crystallization of calcium phosphate and they could contribute to the good biocompatibility and high bioactivity.

Differential calorimetry was used to determine the heat evolution and kinetics of hydration processes of the calciumsulphatealuminate phase Ca4(Al6O12)(SO4) with gypsum CaSO4 · 2H2O at room temperature with one mole of water added to the solid phase. An increasing content of sulphate ions in the sytem results in substitution of the monosulphate Ca4(Al2O6)(SO4) · 12H2O in the reaction products by ettringite, Ca6(Al2O6)(SO4)3 · 32H2O. Higher contents of ettringite influence the rates of hydration reactions and the values of the evolved heat.

post-accelerating cement hydration stages, the available free water controls the hydration process and there is a higher formation of hydrated products. Thus, the paste prepared with W/C = 0.55 presents more hydrated products and total combined water
