Hydroxyapatite (HA), chemical formula Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2, is a very popular bioceramic for orthopedic and dental applications. Although HA has excellent biocompatibility, its inferior mechanical properties make it unsuitable for load-bearing implant applications. Therefore, HA should be strengthened by a secondary phase to produce a composite that possesses… CONTINUE READING
