Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Dicalcium Phosphate DCP Properties?

A: Dicalcium phosphate, also known as calcium monohydrogen phosphate, is a dibasic calcium phosphate. Dicalcium phosphate is usually found as the dicalcium phosphate dihydrate, with the chemical formula of CaHPO4 • 2H2O, but it can be thermally converted to the dicalcium phosphate anhydrous. Calcium phosphate dibasic is practically insoluble in water, with a solubility of 0.02 g per 100 mL at 25 °C. Calcium monohydrogen phosphate contains about 29.5 percent calcium in its anhydrous form. White crystal powder,Easily soluble in hydrochloric acid,nitric acid,soluble in cool water,almost insoluble in alcohol.

Q: Dicalcium Phosphate DCP Standard Applications?
A: Dicalcium phosphate is widely used as a dietary additive and supplement for calcium and phosphorous. As an additive, calcium monohydrogen phosphate is included in the production of enriched grain products such as flour and maize meal, in breakfast cereals, pasta, and in many animal products such as dog treats. Calcium hydrophosphate is also available as a direct meal supplement for both human and animal consumption. In this format, the compound is available in capsule or tablet form and typically as part of a wider spectrum of trace minerals. As a veterinary supplement, calcium dihydrogen phosphate is most commonly presented in powdered form for addition to regular animal feed. Calcium monohydrogen phosphate is also used in the pharmaceutical industry as a tableting agent. The compounds insoluble nature makes it useful as a pharmaceutical excipient. In this role, calcium hydrophosphate is used as a carrier for various medications such as those used to eliminate body odor. Its insolubility has also been the focus of several studies into its viability as a delayed-release matrix for highly water soluble drugs. This may have a positive impact on the industry as calcium dihydrogen phosphate is a simpler and cheaper material to use in these applications.
