Bioactive bioceramics have been developed to promote aregeneration of bones.Among all these hydroxyapatite is the most commonly used for clinical applications due to its similarity to inorganic mineral component of bone. However, clinical application of HA is limited due to its slow rate of biodegradation which results a very slow osseointegration rate and requires the long-term stability of implants in bony tissue. Therefore, in this study, two-phaseHA/TCP ceramics was developed. Firstly, separate syntheses of HA and TCP via microwave irradiation and physical mixing of component powders in speciﬁed ratios followed by sintering was developed. The crystalline phase,chemical composition, and morphology of the prepared samples werecharacterized using (XRD) (FTIR), (EDX), and (SEM). The chemical analysis indicated the presence of a calcium phasphates phases. Scanning electron microscopy analysis showed a spheroid-like morphology. These ﬁndings suggested that two-phase HA/TCP ceramics could potentially be used for bone regeneration applications.
