IR Spectroscopy and X-Ray Phase Analysis of the Chemical Composition of Gallstones
- 12 Downloads
The composition of the inorganic and organic parts of gallstones was investigated by x-ray phase analysis and IR spectroscopy. Cholesterol, bilirubin, calcium bilirubinate, calcium carbonate, and calcium hydrogen phosphate are all found in gallstones. The major component is cholesterol. A gallstone was separated into layers and the inorganic part was separated out by annealing. Inorganic compounds were found to predominate in the outer layer of the gallstone, which is related to the mechanism of its formation. The inorganic part contains calcium carbonate, present in both the calcite and waterite modifications.
