Monophasic (without any detectable levels of β-TCP or CaO) hydroxyapatite powders were produced via sol-gel method. The thermal crystallization behaviour was studied by means of differential thermal analysis, mass spectrometry, FT-IR, X-ray analysis and scanning electron microscopy. The plate-like morphology observed in the crystalline hydroxyapatite precursor at 130°C resulted in plate-like hydroxyapatite after higher temperature treatment.
