Synthesis and characterization of hydroxyapatite obtained from different organic precursors by sol–gel method
The synthesis of four types of hydroxyapatite synthesized from calcium chloride and four different organic phosphites is presented. The method of synthesis chosen is the sol–gel route, which has a number of advantages compared to other methods, like the intimate contact between reactants and the milder synthesis conditions. The samples were thermally treated, the TG/DTG/DTA curves being obtained at four heating rates, namely: 7, 10, 12 and 15 °C min−1. The samples were characterized before and after the thermal treatment using FT-IR analysis. The FT-IR spectra certified that the formed compounds represent hydroxyapatite. Based on the information from the TG curves and IR spectra interpretation, a reaction mechanism was proposed.
