Abstract

In this work, hydroxyapatite HA was produced from bovine bone by the calcination at 800°C in 3 hours. Three sources of femur were used to collect the bovine bone: waste, from cows aged 10 -12 months and 2-3 years. The purity, shape and crystal structure of HA were characterized by Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Transmission electron microscopy (TEM).
