Synthesis and Characterization of Hydroxyapatite Powder by Sol-Gel Method for Biomedical Application
Abstract: Hydroxyapatite (HA) is effectively used as a bioimplant material because it closely resembles bone apatite and exhibits good biocompatibility. This paper describe synthesis technique of HA powder by sol-gel method. The product was sintered twice at two different temperatures 400°C to 750°C to improve its crystallinity. The final powder sintered at two temperatures was characterized by X-ray analysis, Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR) to reveal its phase content, morphology and types of bond present within it. Thermal analysis (TG–DTA) was carried out to investigate the thermal stability of the powder.
