Synthesis and application of hydroxyapatite (HA) for removal of heavy metal ions from water


Author(s): Vo Thi My Nga

Abstract: Hydroxyapatite Ca10 (PO4)6 (OH)2 (HA) is a calcium phosphate biomaterial, commonly used as an artificial bone replacement material in orthopedic surgery. Besides, HA is also a very potential material to remove heavy metal ions in wastewater. HA has been shown to be an effective adsorbent and ion exchanger. This manuscript briefly presents some selective methods to synthesize HA material as well as its application in treatment of heavy metal ions, with a typical example being ion removal of Pb2+ in wastewater.
