(inorganic chemistry)
Any phosphate of calcium.
Any of the following three calcium orthophosphates, all of which are white or colorless in pure form: Ca(H2PO4)2 is used as a fertilizer, as a plastics stabilizer, and in baking powder, and is also known as acid calcium phosphate, calcium dihydrogen phosphate, monobasic calcium phosphate, monocalcium phosphate; CaHPO4 is used in pharmaceuticals, animal feeds, and toothpastes, and is also known as calcium hydrogen phosphate, dibasic calcium phosphate, dicalcium orthophosphate, dicalcium phosphate; Ca3(PO4)2 is used as a fertilizer, and is also known as tribasic calcium phosphate, tricalcium phosphate.
