Starting from Ca(OH)2 and H3PO4 hydroxyapatite powders with three different crystallinity degrees have been prepared and characterized. Densification extent and mechanisms were studied through dilatometric measurements in isothermal regime in the range of temperature 750–1250°C: the influence of different powder features (including the effect of calcination treatment) have been evaluated. Powder characterized by the lowest crystallinity degree has the highest densification extent; overlapping phenomena occurring during the sintering treatments are responsible for unexpectedly low values found for the shrinkage rate, which can easily lead to a misidentification of the rate controlling mechanism. An interpretation of the densification mechanism, consistent with all experimental findings, is proposed.

Abstract Synthetic hydroxyapatites (HA) with widely different crystallinity degrees were prepared starting from calcium hydroxide and phosphoric acid. The powders were carefully characterised by various physico-chemical techniques. Additions of Ca(OH) 2 were performed in order to improve HA thermal stability to firing treatments up to temperatures significantly higher than those commonly employed for safe HA sintering. A positive effect in this sense was found, yielding HA almost pure samples up...

The mechanism and kinetics of thermal decomposition of injection moulded hydroxyapatite ceramics were studied over the temperature range of 1473–1758 K. At temperatures below 1473 K the sintering and transformation of hydroxyapatite to hydroxyoxyapatite proceeded to a conversion degree of 0.4 to 0.5. At temperatures between 1473 and 1758 K the hydroxyapatite was decomposed to α-TCP, H2O and CaO. The decomposition of HOA started on the surface of the HOA ceramics. The rate of increase in the thic...

Two types of nonstoichiometric apatite coatings on Ti6Al4V substrates were prepared in our laboratory by electrodeposition and hydrothermal synthesis. One was composed of highly pure needle-like calcium-deficient hydroxyapatite, and the other consisted of needle-like calcium-deficient hydroxyapatite and plate-like brushite. In this paper, the morphology, phase transition, and bonding strength of these coatings sintered at 450°∼980°C in an air atmosphere were studied. In addition, the residual st...

Abstract The effects of doped bioactive glass (BG) on the structure and properties of sintered hydroxyapatite (HA) have been studied. The results showed that a calcination treatment at 900 °C increased the degree of crystallinity and the amount of hydroxyl group in HA, but resulted in the loss of a small amount of phosphorus. The addition of BG enhanced HA phase decomposition and hydroxyl group breakdown processes, decreased HA density and microhardness, increased indentation toughness in most c...

This paper reviews the past, present, and future of the hydroxyapatite (HAp)-based biomaterials from the point of view of preparation of hard tissue replacement implants. Properties of the hard tissues are also described. The mechanical reliability of the pure HAp ceramics is low, therefore it cannot be used as artificial teeth or bones. For these reasons, various HAp-based composites have been fabricated, but only the HAp-coated titanium alloys have found wide application. Among the others, the...

Abstract Four different temperatures (700–1000 °C) were chosen for calcination treatment of as-received hydroxyapatite powder before press forming and sintering to study the effect of calcination on the sintering behaviours. The results show that calcination treatment increases the average particle size and distribution, which changes from trimodal to monomodal. The sintering behaviours were investigated by dilatometry and density measurement. Fluidity of powder and driving force for sintering w...

Gas chromatography was employed to quasi-continuously determine the amount of carbon dioxide that evolved from carbonate apatite specimens during sintering. Assuming that the carbonate in the specimens decomposed to carbon dioxide on a mole-for-mole basis, the determination of the carbon dioxide evolved allowed for the determination of the amount of carbonate that remained in the specimens during different stages of sintering. Previously, this measurement could be carried out only after sinterin...

Hydroxyapatite (Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2) ceramic sheets with a wide range of porosities (up to 62%) have been prepared. The process is based on the reaction between dicalcium phosphate (CaHPO4) and calcium carbonate (CaCO3). When mixed with the appropriate Ca/P ratio, this proves to be a reliable new method for obtaining hydroxyapatite. Moreover, CaCO3 serves as a gas-forming agent (due to the evolution of carbon dioxide and water during the reaction), which leads to the development of highly porous mic...

The kinetics of the thermal decomposition of stoichiometric hydroxylapatite (HA) has been studied up to 1500°C for the purpose of determining the maximum admissible combinations of temperature and time for sintering HA. The influence of the sintering temperature on shrinkage, density and grain growth is then investigated in the temperature range from 1000 to 1450°C. Nearly theoretical density was achieved above 1300°C. A maximum fracture toughness is obtained for the samples sintered at 1300°C w...

According to Le Chatelier's principle, dehydration and the associated decomposition of hydroxyapatite (HAP) to biodegradable unhydrated calcium phosphates during sintering may be suppressed under a moist sintering atmosphere (thermodynamic effect), or possibly under a pressurized sintering atmosphere (physical effect), by opposing the release of water. The present study explored this possibility. High-purity powdered additives were used to minimize impurity and morphological effects. Al2O3, C, S...

Abstract Carbonated hydroxyapatite (CCaHAp) closely mimics the chemical composition of apatite found in human bone, compared to hydroxyapatite (HA). The present study aimed to prepare CCaHAp nanocomposite using a copolymer of sodium hyaluronate-polyacrylamide (poly(Hya-AAm)) hydrogel as a HA template. Here, a gamma irradiation technique was utilized for preparing poly(Hya-AAm) hydrogel. The hydrogel had a dual function as a HA template and carbon precursor. The CCaHAp nanocomposite was synthesiz...

Abstract Hydroxyapatite (HAp) is a raw material used to fabricate scaffolds. Scaffolds are required to be porous to facilitate nutrient flow and vascularization. This study aims to produce porous HAp ceramics with macropores (>200 μm) and bioactivity and tune their macropore size. Polyethylene glycol (PEG) with molecular weights of 400, 3,400, and 8,300 was used to generate macropores. The macropore size increased as the molecular weight of PEG increased. In this method, emulsions were formed by...

Biomimetic synthesis of bioceramics using simulated body fluid (SBF) is a route to produce biomaterials with a more suitable microstructure and characteristics required for bone defect treatments. As matter of fact, the biomimetic method allows us to imitate the natural environment needed for the synthesis of bone-like materials, such as hydroxyapatite (HA). In this study, biomimetic HA was successfully synthesized through the microwave-assisted method by the employment of SBF in different ratio...

Abstract We report the synthesis of a range of sodium-carbonate co-substituted hydroxyapatite compositions with sodium and measured carbonate contents ranging from approximately 0.4-0.8 wt% and 4.4-14.2 wt%, respectively, via aqueous precipitation reaction between calcium hydroxide, phosphoric acid and either sodium carbonate or sodium hydrogen-carbonate. A subsequent heat treatment in dry CO2 at 600°C allowed for a Na-CO3 co-substituted apatite containing approximately 17.7 wt% carbonate to be ...

Abstract Calcium phosphate-based bioactive materials have attracted considerable attention in recent years to repair bone defects. In particular, poorly crystalline apatites (PCA) are successfully used for bone repair and regeneration, enhancing the osteointegration and osteoconduction properties. Our study aims to better understand the mechanism of apatite formation on the poorly crystallized apatite powders. For this purpose, two PCA samples were synthesized in the same conditions varying the ...

Abstract This study presents a more extensive report on the experimental and theoretical characterization of the Ce-doped hydroxyapatite (HAp) samples additionally doped with Pr at varying amounts. To achieve this goal, four Ce-containing (a constant amount of 0.35 at.%) HAps additionally doped with Pr at various amounts (0.35, 0.70, 1.05, and 1.40 at.%) were synthesized via a combustion method. Besides, all these samples were modeled theoretically by using a density functional theory (DFT). The...

Abstract We present a study on the crystal structure and luminescence of Eu3+-doped calcium phosphate (Eu-CaP) nanoparticles. The sintering treatment on the pristine Eu-CaP leads to its crystallization into hydroxyapatite (HA) and further to biphasic structure that contains both HA and β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP). Photoluminescence spectroscopy has been a widely used technique to identify the site occupancy of Eu3+ and its thermal-induced migration behavior in pure phase CaP. However, for sin...
