Sodium Hexametaphosphate: Water softener.
Tricalcium Phosphate: An inorganic, particular or solid form of relatively biodegradable ceramic, which is used as a scaffold for bone regeneration. It can act as a matrix for new bone growth.
Phosphate Group: A chemical group composed of a central phosphorous bonded to three or four oxygens. The net charge on the group is negative.
N-6 Furfuryladenine: Also known as Kinetin.
Adenine (A): A nitrogenous base, one member of the base pair a- t (adenine- thymine).
Adenosine Diphosphate (ADP): Lower energy form of ATP, having two (instead of the three in ATP) phosphhate groups attached to the adenine base and ribose sugar.
Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP): A common form in which energy is stored in living systems; consists of a nucleotide (with ribose sugar) with three phosphate groups. The energy coin of the cell.
