Synthesis and Characterization of Hydroxyapatite Produced From Egg Shells; A Micellar Templated Approach
In the present study hydroxyapatite (HA) powder has been synthesized using egg shells as source of calcium. The synthesis has been carried out using CTAB, surfactant micelles as templates through hydrothermal approach. The phase purity and crystallinity of synthesized powder synthesized was conducted using FTIR and XRD analysis respectively. Whereas, FESEM and TEM analysis was conducted to observe morphology of synthesized sample. Results indicated synthesis of low crystalline HA nanopowders with rodlike morphology.
