Abstract

Nano- and micrometer-scale rod array structure of HAp having preferred orientation was successfully prepared by soaking calcium-containing borosilicate glass substrates in Na2HPO4 aqueous solution at 80°C for 7 days. Nano-scale HAp rods grew up perpendicularly to the glass surface, and the crystallites were arranged on the glass entire surface uniformly with preferred orientation to the c-axis.
