Abstract

The aim of present study was to fabricate porous α-Tricalcium phosphate (α-TCP) with adequate mechanical strength and pore interconnectivity. First step, α-TCP spheres were exposed to acidic calcium phosphate solution to allow growth and interlocking of dicalcium phosphate dihydrate (DCPD) crystals precipitated on the surface of the α-TCP spheres. Then, the DCPDcoated α-TCP spheres were sintered at 1,500°C for 6h, which resulted in the fusion of spheres to form the interconnected porous block. XRD analysis showed single phase α-TCP was obtained. Mechanical strength of porous α-TCP was 6.9 ± 1.6 MPa and porosity was 53 ± 5%. The obtained porous α-TCP could be employed as potential bone substitute or precursor for other bioceramics like carbonate apatite and hydroxyapatite.
