Abstract: Initial rates of ion-exchange adsorption of nickelous or cupric ions with calcium ions on the surface of synthetic hydroxyapatite were studied in aqueous nitrate solutions. A kinetic interpretation has been proposed. The determination of the initial rates is important for a systematic investigation of adhesion of certain properly designed substances that may mediate a chemical bonding between dental resins and "mordanted" calcified tissues.
