Solid solutions of cadmium and calcium hydroxyapatite [Ca10−x Cdx (PO4)6 (OH)2 (0 ≤ x ≤ 10)] were synthesized by a wet process in a basic medium. The lattice dimensions of these compounds vary linearly with the atom percent cadmium. The distribution of the calcium and cadmium ions between two non- equivalent crystallographic sites, (1) and (2), were determined by the Rietveld method. The site-occupancy factors of atoms indicate a slight preference of cadmium for site (2) in the apatite structure.
