Abstract : Work was performed on the mineral phase of dentine and enamel of rabbit teeth, particularly interesting in view of their low Ca/P ratio. Within the same conceptual approach to the structure of the mineral phase in calcified tissues, namely the existence of specific deviations from the hydroxyapatite model, the problem of the carbonate fraction in natural and biological apatites was studied. A systematic study of these compounds was initiated, based mainly on infrared absorption spectrophotometry. The report concerns two specific points: the chemical composition of rabbit teeth and the carbonate fraction of natural and biological apatites.
