Morphological Variations of Hydroxyapatite Nanostructures by Different Synthesis Methods

Abstract:

Article Preview

Multiform morphologies of hydroxyapatite nanostructures were synthesized by different methods. Some novel methods were adopted for preparing different morphologies. The morphological analysis confirms that the preparation method greatly influences the morphological characterization. The morphological analysis further confirmed by the TEM analysis. The nanostructure clearly depicts the growth stages of the HAp. The interplanar distances measured in segments (fringes) of the HRTEM micrograph were ~0.35 nm, corresponding to the interplanar spacing of the [002] plane of the hexagonal hydroxyapatite. X-ray Diffraction (XRD) measurements indicate the formation of crystalline hexagonal hydroxyapatite. The morphological dependent properties were analyzed in detail.
