      Article
      Open Access
      Biominerals formed by DNA and calcium oxalate (CaOx) or hydroxyapatite (HAp), the most important and stable phase of calcium phosphate) have been examined and compared using a synergistic combination of computer simulation ...
    • Calcium phosphate neuron-like structures: a rare case or a common structure? 

      Español, M.; Zhao, Z.T.; Almunia, J; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-01-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Underneath the unique and beautiful structures of biominerals there is always the presence of organic molecules that tightly interact with the developing inorganic nuclei/crystal directing its growth and assembly towards ...
    • Dissolving hydroxyolite: a DNA molecule into its hydroxyapatite mold 

      Bertran Cànovas, Òscar; Revilla López, Guillermo; Casanovas Salas, Jordi; Valle Mendoza, Luis Javier del; Turón Dols, Pau; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi; Alemán Llansó, Carlos (2016-04-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      In spite of the clinical importance of hydroxyapatite (HAp), the mechanism that controls its dissolution in acidic environments remains unclear. Knowledge of such a process is highly desirable to provide better understanding ...
    • EDTA and NTA effectively tune the mineralization of calcium phosphate from bulk aqueous solution
