Powders of hydroxyapatite (HA), partially fluoride-substituted hydroxyapatite (fHA), and fluorapatite (FA) were synthesized in house using optimum methods to achieve relatively pure powders. These powders were assessed by the commonly used bulk techniques of X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infra-red (FTIR) and FT-Raman spectroscopies, inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES), and F-selective electrode. In addition, the current study has employed transmission… CONTINUE READING
