Abstract

Hydroxyapatite (HA) is a major component of human hard tissue such as bone and teeth formed from the main elements of calcium and phosphorus with the formula Ca 10 (PO 4 ) 6 (OH) 2 . HA materials from natural sources such as fish bones are acceptable to the human body as well because their physical and chemical properties are similar to those of human bone apatite. Thermal calcination method is widely used in various studies on the extraction of hydroxyapatite from fish bones. The calcination temperature variables, the calcination time and the type of fish bone are some factors that affect the properties of hydroxyapatite. This study shows the things occurred outside the success of the experiments and the process of hydroxyapatite synthesis of Tenggiri fish bone. The color of the calcined powder as the result of this study is dark caused by impurities or contaminants. The hydroxyapatite obtained from Tenggiri fish bones is a little. There are many impurities and oil content contained in fish bones that can be minimized by using acetone.
