Studies of the attack of gel‐stabilized suspensions of hydroxyapatite show dissolution at the boundary of the solid region and reprecipitation within this region. The results are apparently consistent with a theory which assumes that porous solid dissolution is diffusion‐controlled but constrained by nonlinear solubility products.
