PRODUCTION OF PHOSPHORIC ACID

8 The phosphate minerals in both types of ore are of the apatite group, of which the most commonly encountered variants are:- – Fluorapatite Ca10(PO4)6(F,OH)2. – Francolite Ca10(PO4)6–x(CO3)x(F,OH)2+x. Fluorapatite predominates in igneous phosphate rocks and francolite predominates in sedimentary phosphate rocks.

Apatite

Apatite is the defining mineral for 5 on the Mohs scale. Hydroxyapatite, also known as hydroxylapatite, is the major component of tooth enamel and bone mineral. A relatively rare form of apatite in which most of the OH groups are absent and containing many carbonate and acid phosphate substitutions is a large component of bone material.
