Preparation and Characterization of Porous Hydroxyapatite Block Using a HHP Method

Abstract:

Article Preview

Porous hydroxyapatite has been prepared using a hydrothermal hot pressing method from calcium carbonate as a starting material. SEM result shows porous hydroxyapatite block is formed of three dimensionally inter-connected pores of 100-400µm in size, similar to human cancellous bone. At the ~ 70% porosity, the compressive strength was about 4MPa, which is similar to that of the commercially available porous hydroxyapatite derived from natural coral.
