Nanometer size hydroxyapatite (HA) crystals are prepared by a wet chemical precipitation method at different synthesis temperatures and with various reactant addition rates. The resulting aqueous suspensions are studied in terms of morphology (transmission electron microscope, specific surface area), phase (X-ray diffraction, electron diffraction and infrared spectroscopy) and rheological properties. This work shows that shape, size and specific surface area of the HA nanoparticles are very… 
Influence of hydrothermal synthesis parameters on the properties of hydroxyapatite nanoparticles
It was shown that by changing the synthesis parameters, the diameter of HAp nanoparticles could be controlled and strong similarities were found when comparing the properties of some types of nanostructured hydroxyapatite with natural occurring apatite found in animal bones and teeth.
Synthesis and Properties of Hydroxyapatite Nanorods
Hydroxyapatite (HA) nanopowders were synthesized at 70°C by a co-precipitation method using slaked lime and phosphoric acid solution at different pH values. Ammonia was used to adjust the pH of the
Preparation of mesoporous hydroxyapatite films used as biomaterials via sol–gel technology
The mesoporous hydroxyapatite films (MHFs) have been developed on glass slides by sol–gel dip-coating technology using cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) as the structure-directing agent and the
Process Optimisation to Control the Physico-Chemical Characteristics of Biomimetic Nanoscale Hydroxyapatites Prepared Using Wet Chemical Precipitation
Hydroxyapatite nanoscale particles (nHA) were prepared by wet chemical precipitation using four different synthesis methods. Differences in physico-chemical properties including morphology,
Crystallization of Nano-Sized Hydroxyapatite via Wet Chemical Process under Strong Alkaline Conditions
This research focused on the synthesis of hydroxyapatite (HA) nanoparticles via wet chemical method. Ca(NO3)2·4H2O dissolved in absolute ethanol and (NH4)2HPO4 dissolved in distilled water were mixed
Influence of temperature and aging time on HA synthesized by the hydrothermal method
The influence of temperature and aging time on the morphology and mechanical properties of nano-sized hydroxyapatite (HA) synthesized by a hydrothermal method is reported here and both the sintered density and flexural strength increased with increasing aging time and reaction temperature.
Low temperature aqueous precipitation of needle-like nanophase hydroxyapatite
A comparison and characterisation of hydroxyapatite (HA), a popular calcium phosphate (CaP) biomaterial, synthesised by an aqueous precipitation (AP) method, found initial pH was found to influence the crystallisation process and determine the CaP phase formed as well as the resultant particle and crystallite sizes.


Shape change and phase transition of needle-like non-stoichiometric apatite crystals
Nanometre-size needle-like non-stoichiometric apatite crystals are made in our laboratory by hydrothermal treatment at 140°C at a pressure of 0.3 MPa for 2 h. The shape change and phase transition of
Synthesis of Hydroxyapatite from Metal Alkoxides through Sot-Gel Technique
Hydroxyapatite was synthesized through the sol-gel technique using Ca(OC2H5)2 and P(OC2H5)3 as starting metal alkoxides. It has been found that the pH of the starting solution is one of the most
Vibrational Spectra of Hydrothermally Prepared Hydroxyapatites
Apatites can be used as bioceramic materials for tooth and bone implants. Infrared (4000 to 400 cm−1) and laser-Raman spectra were obtained for hydrothermally prepared hydroxyapatites with the
