Abstract: During recent years, there have been efforts in developing nanocrystalline bioceramics, to enhance their mechanical and biological properties for use in hard tissue engineering applications. In this work, we study the effects of some sintering additive nanopowders dopants on the properties of the sintered HA structures. Calculated quantities of silica nanopowders are incorporate as dopants into dried HA nanopowder. The mixing powders are uniaxially compacted and then sintered at 1200°C by rate-controlled sintering method in air. Compositional, microstructural, morphological and mechanical characterizations are carried out on sintered HA samples. © (2010) Trans Tech Publications.
