It consists of calcium silicates, monobasic calcium phosphate
, zirconium oxide, tantalum oxide, and thickening agents.
Composition- According to the manufacturer, it is composed of calcium silicate, monobasic calcium phosphate
, zirconium oxide, tantalum oxide and filler agents and is available as paste in preloaded syringes and also in a moldable putty form.
As the pH of most nutritional parenteral solutions is between 4 and 8, understanding the pH-dependent behavior of the two forms of calcium phosphate, monobasic calcium phosphate
Ca[([H.sub.2]P[O.sub.4]).sub.2] and dibasic calcium phosphate CaHP[O.sub.4], is critical to evaluating and predicting the probability of precipitation of calcium phosphate crystals [23-25].
