Paper Title:
Phosphoric Acid Rate Addition Effect in the Hydroxyapatite Synthesis by Neutralization Method
  Abstract

Calcium phosphates with different Ca/P molar ratio can be obtained depending the precipitation conditions such as pH and temperature. In this work the effect of the pH’s variation during the H3PO4 addition in the synthesis of hydroxyapatite-HA, (Ca/P molar ratio 1.67) by neutralization method, was studied. The H3PO4 addition’s rate was 1.0, 1.5, 8.0 mL.min-1 and in other experiment the H3PO4 was added at a time. After the addition was completed the pH ranged from 7-12. The suspensions were kept during 24 hours for ripening. The precipitate was separated from the suspension by vacuum filtration, washed with distilled water and dried at 70°C/24h. Afterwards the materials were analyzed by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) with heating rate of 10°C/min in air. The calcination of the powders was accomplished at 800°C/3h with heating rate of 10°C.min-1. The powders were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), infrared spectrometry (FTIR), specific surface area (BET), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results indicated that the ratio of addition of the acid can influence both the morphology and the formation of the phases (HA and TCP) in the obtained powders.
