Effect of Ca/P Molar Ratio and Heat Treatment on Thermal Decomposition and Reconstitution of Hydroxyapatite

Stability of hydroxyapatite(HA) structure is influenced by preparation conditions and afterwards heat treatment. In this paper, the powders with different Ca/P molar ratio were calcined to investigate the influence of Ca/P and heat treatment on thermal decomposition and reconstitution of HA. The results show that the Ca/P has little change even calcined at a high temperature of 1500°C. The Ca/P molar ratio close to 1.67 is beneficial to form high purity HA. HA gradually releases its OH- ions in the temperature range of 800-1200°C. The decomposition takes place at about 1200°C and will become more and more severe with the increase of temperature. Cooling with slow rate and post-heat treatment in wet atmosphere are beneficial to both the rehydration and the recovery of HA from the decomposition products (TTCP and α-TCP).
