TCP is not Talc
Addressing the False Narrative about TCP
In response to statements falsely claiming that Tricalcium Phosphate (TCP) is talc, it is the intention of this paper to show that the claim is demonstrably false. The cited data herein shows that talc is a hydrated magnesium silicate whereas TCP is a calcium phosphate, containing neither magnesium nor silica in any relevant amount. It is the conclusion of this document that the claim “TCP is talc” is not accurate by any empirical definition and stands without any intellectual merit.
