Nano-sized zinc containing β-tricalcium phosphate (ZnTCP) powders were synthesized by a co-precipitation method. The co-precipitation took place in an ice-water bathed beaker, after further washing, freezing, lyophilizing and calcining at 800°C, the precipitates transformed to ZnTCP powders. The XRD pattern of the ZnTCP powders demonstrated a pure β-TCP phase. TEM observation revealed the particle size is about 100-120nm, which is favorable for TCP particles to form composites, such as polymer based composite, and as well to attain a desired microstructure. It was found zinc incorporation could eventually result in the decrease of particle size, thus be beneficial for its further application.
