In this reaction, a phosphate gel was formed as a precursor of the ceramics since the metal oxide dissolved to release cations reacted with the hydrolytic phosphate ions, and the main final phase of hydration product is struvite, but many other phases also existed during or after hydration reaction, such as dittmarite (N[H.sub.4]MgP[O.sub.4]*[H.sub.2]O), schertelite ([(N[H.sub.4]).sub.2]Mg[(HP[O.sub.4]).sub.2]*4[H.sub.2]O), newberyite (MgHP[O.sub.4]*3[H.sub.2]O), and magnesium phosphate hydrate [Mg.sub.3][(P[O.sub.4]).sub.2]*4[H.sub.2]O [12, 13].
