About this book Introduction This hesitancy may have arisen in part from the realization that considerable skill would be required in order to extract the meaning from the thousands of papers that have appeared within the past twenty years; the task of attempting to extract and assemble the usable information seemed gigantic.   The first synthesis of apatite was performed by Daubrée by passing the PCl3 vapor over red-hot lime. The fourth chapter of this book introduces techniques for the preparation of synthetic analogs of apatite minerals including solid-state synthesis, wet chemical methods, hydrothermal synthesis as well as methods for preparation of single by: 2.   Synthetic apatite can suggest what highly pure non enriched apatite would behave like, due to the composition being set at fabrication. Since first being synthesized in the early 20th century, synthetic apatite can now be produced by a number of different methods, ranging from sol gel to hydrothermal methods [ , ].Cited by: Apatite is the main source of phosphorus.
