β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) and biphasic calcium phosphate powders (BCP), consisting of hydroxyapatite (HA) and β-TCP, were synthesized by thermal decomposition of precursor powders obtained from neutralization method. The precursor powders with a Ca/P molar ratio of 1.5 were prepared by adding an orthophosphoric acid (H 3 PO 4 ) solution to an aqueous suspension containing calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH) 2 ). Mixing was carried out by vigorous stirring and under sonochemical irradiation at 50 kHz, respectively. Glycerol and D-glucose were added to evaluate their influence on the precipitation of the resulting calcium phosphate powders. After calcination at 1000°C for 3 h BCP nanopowders of various HA/β-TCP ratio were obtained. © 2007 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
