Natural hydroxyapatite (HA) has been extracted from porcine bone by thermal decomposition without any chemical treatment. The suitable condition to synthesize HA was chosen as a heating bone at 750 °C during 6 hours. XRD and FTIR analyses confirmed the high purity and crystallinity of synthetic HA. Furthermore, the transformation of the obtained HA to other phases did not mention up to 1200 °C. TG curve showed a slight loss of mass at 950 °C, but the DSC analysis did not present any

EDX analysis indicated that the Ca/P ratio of the synthetic HA is 1.64, nearly the theoretical value of 1.67. Overall, the results obtained in this study confirmed the success of the thermal process to extract the natural HA from porcine bone.
