Tricalcium Phosphate Production Cost Analysis 2020

Tricalcium phosphate, which is sometimes abbreviated to TCP, is an example of calcium salt of phosphoric acid. It is better known as tribasic calcium phosphate and bone phosphate of lime or BPL. It is a white solid, having low solubility. Most industrial samples of tricalcium phosphate are hydroxyapatite.

Tricalcium phosphate exists as three crystalline polymorphs α, α', and β, where the α and α' states specifically are stable at high temperatures. Calcium phosphate is one of the primary products of bone. Calcium phosphate is also widely extracted from inorganic sources like a mineral rock. Tricalcium phosphate is found naturally in several forms, like a rock in Morocco, Philippines, Egypt, Israel, and Kola (Russia) and in limited quantities in some other countries. However, the natural form of this chemical compound is not entirely pure, as there are some other components like sand and lime that changes the composition. It is also found in the skeletons and teeth of a vertebrate animal.

Tricalcium phosphate is extenively used in powdered spices as an anticaking agent, for example, to prevent table salt from caking.  Baby powder and toothpaste are also one of the products where this chemical compound is often found.
