  • Sivalingam Lakshmanan

Abstract

The present work is aimed at the synthesis of antibacterial and bioactive both divalent and trivalent substituted hydroxyapatite (LaMCa3(PO4)3OH, La0.7M0.3 Ca4(PO4)3OH  (M = Sr, Zn, Mg) ) were synthesized by ultra sonic method.  The as-synthesized samples  were  characterized  by  Fourier  transform  infrared  spectroscopy  (FTIR),  X-ray  diffraction  (XRD), field  emission  scanning  electron  microscopy  (FESEM),  energy  dispersive  X-ray  analysis  (EDAX),  high resolution  transmission  electron  microscopy  (HRTEM)  and  thermo  gravimetric  analysis  (TGA). The  antibacterial  activity  of  the  as-synthesized  nanoparticles  was  evaluated  against  two  prokaryotic strains (Escherichia  coli  and Staphylococcus  aureus).
