In the present study, Ca2P2O7-doped β-Ca3(PO4)2 bioceramics were fabricated by pressureless sintering process. The effect of Ca2P2O7 on the sintering ability, mechanical strength and degradability of the ceramics were investigated. The results showed that the Ca2P2O7 could apparently decrease the sintering ability and mechanical properties of β-Ca3(PO4)2. Moreover, the relative density and mechanical strength of the sintered samples decreased gradually with the increase of the Ca2P2O7 additive amount. However, the dissolution rate of the samples increased with the increase of the Ca2P2O7 additive amount.
