Abstract

LONDONO, Marta Elena; ECHAVARRIA, Alejandro  and  DE LA CALLE, Francenith. CARACTERÍSTICAS CRISTALOQUÍMICAS DE LA HIDROXIAPATITA SINTÉTICA TRATADA A DIFERENTES TEMPERATURAS. Rev.EIA.Esc.Ing.Antioq [online]. 2006, n.5, pp.109-118. ISSN 1794-1237.

Synthetic Hydroxyapatite (HA) is a calcium phosphate whose chemical composition is very similar to that present in human bones. This characteristic makes it biocompatible with live tissue. Due to this biocompatibility, it is possible to use HA in many medical applications. In this research, crystalochemical properties of HA obtained by different thermal treatments and put later in physiological Ringer solution, during 5 and 30 days, were followed. Conductivity measurement and analysis by spectrophotometric UV-VIS, selective ion, DRX, FTIR, and SEM showed the high dependence of crystalinity of both thermal treatment and higher solubility of the more crystalline samples. Besides, when the samples were immersed in Ringer solution, the competition between two mechanisms, dissolution and precipitation, was reveled.

Keywords : Biomaterials; calcium phosphate; hydroxyapatite; solubility.
