Hydroxyapatite is a kind of ideal biomaterials for bone and teeth replacement, but its low strength and brittleness need to improve. As bone replacing materials, hydroxyapatite (HAP) and zirconia both have advantage and disadvantage. Nano-sized HAP-ZrO2 powders and HAP-TZP (3Y) (3mol% yttria - stabilized cubic zirconia) bioceramic for artificial joint have been fabricated in this paper. The nano-sized HAP-ZrO2 powders with homogeneous distribution could be synthesized by two-step precipitation… CONTINUE READING
