Abstract: Apatite coexist in mineral ore deposits with other calcium-bearing minerals such as calcium phosphate, calcium carbonate, calcium fluorite. Apatite need to be separated from these by flotation process. Surfactant molecules with long hydrophobic chains are attached to make mineral surfaces hydrophobic. They are attached either by physisorption or ionic bonding. A selection model of collector molecules using atomistic simulation has been modelled
