Abstract

Sea coral is a very rich natural source of calcium carbonate in its aragonite crystalline phase, which can be converted using hydrothermal conversion to hydroxyapatite.

For later use in the medical field in general and in the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery in particular.

Research objective: Synthesis of hydroxyapatite from sea coral using hydrothermal conversion technology.

Materials and Methods: Hydroxyapatite was characterized by infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and elemental analysis.

Results: Functional groups were determined using FTIR, crystal structure using XRD, particle morphology was checked using SEM, and component elements were determined by EDX.

Conclusions: The results of the elemental analysis showed that the P/CA value was 1.69, which is the characteristic value of hydroxyapatite with the formula CA10(PO4)6OH2.
