Temperature Effect on Hydroxyapatite Preparation by Co-precipitation Method under Carbamide Influence
1 Department of Material and Engineering Science, Wuhan Institute of Technology, Wuhan 430074, Hubei, China
Hydroxyapatite crystal was prepared by homogeneous co-precipitation method using a mixture of Calcium nitrate and diammonium phosphate as raw materials and carbamide as the buffering agent. To analyzed the influence of temperature on hydroxyapatite crystal morphology, the phase composition, crystal morphology and growth orientation were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscope and infrared spectrum respectively. The results show that when the reaction temperature increase from 70 °C to 95 °C, the phases composition of crystal transform from the two phases of tricalcium phosphate and eight calcium phosphate to hydroxyapatite single crystal; the morphology of the hydroxyapatite crystals transforms from nodular whisker to perfectly and compactly acicular whisker.
