Paper Title:
Hydrolysis of α-TCP and Development of Hydroxyapatite Whiskers
  Abstract

Calcium deficient (Ca/P = 1.53-1.61, molar ratio) whisker shaped hydroxyapatite (HAp) with a high aspect ratio ~26 (diameter: 0.2-0.3 µm) has been prepared by the hydrolysis of a-Ca3(PO4)2 (a-TCP) in an aqueous solvent system under controlled conditions. The influence of processing variables on the conversion of a-TCP to HAp, and the microstructure and composition of the HAp was characterized by means of XRD, SEM, TEM and ICP instruments.
