Abstract Scope Magnesium is an excellent candidate for intracellular cation applications in the human body. It is an essential cation for good health as it regulates the percentage of calcium and phosphorous in human bone. In this work, A-Z series magnesium alloy (AZ31) and its composite with hydroxyapatite (HA) were used as targeted materials due to their properties suitable for artificial bone material. These composites were processed using powder metallurgy route assisted with microwave heating. Further, the microwave sintered samples were investigated for their physical, compositional, and mechanical properties. X-ray diffractometry for composition and scanning electron microscopy for microstructure analysis were used. Mechanical properties such as microhardness and compressive strength were measured and compared with the human bone. It was found that the microwave sintered composites can be used as a substitute material for biodegradable implants, which are widely used for healing the malfunctioned tissues.
