Nanocrystalline hydroxyapatite (HA) powder was synthesized by a simple heating process involving simple chemical reaction. The characterization of the produced powder showed that the powder is nanosizewith particle in range of 30-70 nm in diameter and almost evenly spherical in shape. The powder also has a high surface area of 43.16 m21g. Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy 1FESEM) observation showed the crysidlite and particle size becomes bigger with increment of calcination temperature, indicating increasing of crystallinity.
