Calcium phosphates and their substituted forms are widely used in human life, including but not limited to in biomedical applications, adsorptions, water purification, catalysts, and nutrition additives. This Special Issue is dedicated to recent advances in the crystallography and physical chemistry properties of calcium phosphate minerals and their synthetic analogs in the form of nanoparticles, powders, ceramics, and cement materials. Cations and anion substitutions in the calcium phosphate’s structure, as well as composite materials and minerals, open broad opportunities to design and create materials with outstanding properties.
Investigations into composition–structure–property relationships using modern characterization techniques and theoretical models, computer simulations, and first-principles calculations are the focus of the Special Issue, aiming to give rise to the elucidation of materials with improved characteristics. The data of experimental investigations and theoretical and calculation results for calcium-phosphate-based materials in the form of original articles, communications, and reviews are warmly welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Minerals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
