Abstract

The synthesis of multiple ions doped nanoapatite powder was carried out by wet precipitation technique. A newly developed reaction route with self-controlled pH at high reaction temperatures, i.e. 37 & 85±2 C was compared to the conventional synthesis route at 37±2 C. The XRD peaks were very broad, indicating the presence of nanocrystalline apatite. The primary particle size of the powder was in the range of 20-30 nm whereas the fraction of crystallinity was between 0.20 and 0.63. TEM and SEM characterizations confirmed the nanosized primary particles of the apatite samples. The high temperature synthesis at 37 & 85±2 C improved both crystallite size and crystallinity of the as-prepared samples. A highly crystalline HA phase was formed in the ions doped samples without secondary phases, indicating its thermal stability at 900 C in both CO2 and air atmosphere. The in vitro cytocompatibility of the synthesised nanoapatite powders was confirmed by cell viability of human skin fibroblasts.
