Different precursor chemicals (3Ca(OH)(2), Ca(NO3)(2) and CaO as Ca2+ sources, H3PO4 and (NH4)(2)HPO4 as PO43- sources were used to synthesis of nanosized hydroxyapatite powder with ultrasonic precipitation method. The effect of different chemical precursors was investigated. Sample characterization was achieved by powder X-ray diffraction, the Fourier transformed infrared transmission spectroscopy, zeta sizer, scanning electron microscopy, density and surface area measurements.
