Hydroxyapatite (HAP), the major inorganic composition of mammal bones, has good biocompatibility, biological activity and osteoconductivity. Gadolinium(Gd) with seven unpaired electron on 4f orbit can be used for MRI contrast agent due to its large electron spin magnetic moment and relaxivity. In this study, the magnetic Gd 3+ doped HAP nanoparticles (Gd-nHAP) were synthesized via coprecipitation method. Results showed that the magnetization of Gd-nHAP was gradually enhanced along with the

Moreover, with a fixed doping content of Gd 3+ , the increase of reaction temperature (60°C-280°C) did not generate significant effect on magnetization of synthesized Gd-nHAP. The result showed that magnetization of Gd 3+ has no strong correlation with crystallinity and crystalline size of HAP.
