Abstract: Low temperature hydrothermal exchange reaction has been used to synthesize calcium phosphate materials comprising hydroxyapatite and β-tricalcium phosphate using CaO and NH<sub>4</sub>H<sub>2</sub>PO<sub>4</sub> as calcium and phosphorus precursors respectively. The effect of excess of calcium precursor on phase behaviour of these materials has been investigated by varying CaO content (0, 10 and 20 mole% excess of 0.1 mole CaO) in the suspension. The as-synthesized paste has been dried followed by calcination at 700-1200 ºC. Results show the formation of Ca-deficient apatite at the lower calcination temperature. Excess of CaO shifts the balance to hydroxyapatite formation at the higher calcination temperature such that β-tricalcium phosphate, β-tricalcium phosphate + hydroxyapatite and hydroxyapatite of higher purity are obtained with 0, 10 and 20 mole% excess CaO, respectively.
