Capabilities of through-the-substrate microdiffraction: application of Patterson-function direct methods to synchrotron data from polished thin sections

J. Rius, A. Labrador, A. Crespi, C. Frontera, O. Vallcorba and J. C. Melgarejo

Synopsis: Various aspects of the through-the-substrate microdiffraction technique and its application to the structural characterization of polished thin sections are investigated on two representative cases. In one of these a new intermediate crystalline phase (provisionally named ilerdite) is found and its structural model derived from Patterson-function direct methods.

The status of strontium in biological apatites: an XANES investigation

D. Bazin, M. Daudon, C. Chappard, J. J. Rehr, D. Thiaudière and S. Reguer

Synopsis: XANES collected at the Sr K-edge and ab initio FEFF9 numerical simulations have been performed to establish a possible relationship between the preparation mode of the calcification (cellular activity and precipitation) and the adsorption mode of Sr2+ cations (simple adsorption or insertion). Is it possible to draw a line between life and chemistry through the localization of Sr in apatite? The question is open for discussion.
