Unit-cell parameters of the α-tricalcium phosphate [TCP; Ca3(PO4)2] were investigated using high-resolution synchrotron powder diffraction and the Rietveld method. The diffraction experiment was conducted at 29°C at the BL-15XU experimental station of SPring-8, Japan. Precise unit-cell parameters of the α-TCP were obtained; a=12.87271 (9), b=27.28034(8), c=15.21275(12) Å, α==90°, and =126.2078(4)°. The calculated density of α-TCP (2.8677 g/cm3) is smaller than that of -TCP, indicating the “looser” structure of α-TCP.
