Citrate bio-inspired apatite nanoparticles are characterized in terms of structure, size, morphology, and composition through advanced X-ray total scattering techniques. By cross-coupling size and shape information of crystal domains with atomic force microscopy data for multidomain nanoparticles, a plausible mechanism underlying the amorphous-to-crystal transformation is reconstructed and the origin of platy crystal morphology, breaking the hexagonal symmetry, explained.
