AbstractThe purpose of the present study is to synthesize hydroxyapatite by using CaCO3 and H3PO4 in various water-ethanol solvent systems. It was observed from experiments that formation of ammonium phosphate compounds hindered the formation of calcium phosphates in ethanol medium. Although the reactivity was better in aqueous medium, the carbonate contents of the products obtained were above 8.5%. Best results with a carbonate content as low as 3.82% was obtained in 50% ethanol containingdoi:10.2478/s11532-009-0063-6 fatcat:unt2otn7lfg6vomkzmfkfzo2fe
