The uptake of monofluorophosphate (MFP) by hydroxyapatite can be considerably increased by use of coupled diffusion fluxes. The increases in uptake confirm that the rate of incorporation of MFP is a diffusion controlled process. The rate enhancement can be estimated from independent diffusion and solubility measurements. The conditions that should be used for optimal uptakes are discussed.
