Calcium Acid Pyrophosphate
Calcium pyrophosphate (Ca2O7P2) is a chemical compound that can be formed by the reaction of pyrophosphoric acid and a calcium base or by strongly heating calcium hydrogen orthophosphate or calcium ammonium orthophosphate. It is commonly used as a mild abrasive agent in toothpastes. Deposition of CPPD in articular joints causes an arthritis condition called pseudogout.
