As in the previous Workshops, this meeting provided an oppor tunity for interested scientists from interrelated fields, including nephrology, endocrinology, physiology, biochemistry and nutrition, to get together and discuss the recent advances in the field of phosphate and mineral metabolism. We are pleased to present to our readers the Proceedings of the Sixth International Workshop on Phosphate and Other Minerals which was held in Verona, Italy, during June , It was hosted by Professor Giuseppe Maschio, Professor of Medicine and Chief, Department of Nephrology at the.

J.P. Attfield, in Encyclopedia of Materials: Science and Technology, Minerals. Several hundred phosphate minerals are known, virtually all of which are orthophosphates. The important mineral apatite, ideally Ca 5 (PO 4) 3 X (X=F, Cl, OH), is found in igneous pegmatite rocks and hydrothermal veins. Poorly crystalline or amorphous phosphorite sediments made from the . With the commercialization of phosphate fertilizers since the early part of the 19th century, phosphate minerals have assumed an important role in industrial chemistry and agriculture. Clearly, the study of phosphate minerals is important from the economic, agricultural, environmental and (human and animal) health : Jerome O. Nriagu. Phosphorus plays an important role in growth, development, bone formation, acid-base regulation, and cellular metabolism. Inorganic phosphorus exists primarily as the critical structural ion, phosphate (PO4), which serves as a constituent of hydroxyapatite, the mineral basis of the vertebrate skeleton, and at the molecular level, providing the molecular backbone Cited by: 3. Phosphate homeostasis. Phosphorus is an essential element and plays an important role in multiple biological processes .Phosphorus-containing compounds have important roles in cell structure (maintenance of cell membrane integrity and nucleic acids), cellular metabolism (generation of ATP), regulation of subcellular processes (cell signaling Cited by:
Phosphate mineral, any of a group of naturally occurring inorganic salts of phosphoric acid. Phosphates can be grouped as: primary phosphates that have crystallized from a liquid; secondary phosphates formed by the alteration of primary phosphates; and rock phosphates formed from phosphorous-bearing organic material. Phosphate minerals contain the tetrahedrally coordinated phosphate (PO 4 3−) anion along sometimes with arsenate (AsO 4 3−) and vanadate (VO 4 3−) substitutions. Chlorine (Cl −), fluorine (F −), and hydroxide (OH −) anions that also fit into the crystal structure.. The phosphate class of minerals is a large and diverse group, however, only a few species are relatively . Chemical properties. The phosphate ion has a molar mass of g/mol, and consists of a central phosphorus atom surrounded by four oxygen atoms in a tetrahedral arrangement. It is the conjugate base of the hydrogen phosphate ion H(PO 4) 2−, which in turn is the conjugate base of the dihydrogen phosphate ion H 2 (PO 4) −, which in turn is the conjugate base of Beilstein Reference: Chapter Regulation of Calcium, Magnesium, and Phosphate Metabolism Murray J.
