Paper Title:
Apatite-Forming Abilities of β-TCP and Hydroxyapatite Ceramics after Autoclaving
  Abstract

Bonelike apatite formation abilities of β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) and hydroxyapatite (HA) were enhanced by a simple and useful method of autoclaving in distilled water. By immersion tests using simulated body fluid, the apatite formation was observed on the surfaces of the autoclaved β-TCP and HA after 10 days and confirmed to be controllable by the autoclaving temperature, although the formation was not or dispersedly observed on non-autoclaved samples. Surface potentials and morphologies of the samples were decreased and roughed after the autoclaving
