Abstract

Hydroxyapatite (HAP) nanorods were successfully prepared by co-precipitation method using cationic surfactant template, at ambient temperature and pressure. The preparation was done in the customary environment by a process which eliminates the temperature control. The structure of the prepared HAP was confirmed by the FTIR and XRD. HAP rods with diameter ~ 20 nm and length in the range of 100–120 nm were confirmed by FESEM and TEM while the SAED pattern established the crystalline nature of particles. The cytotoxicity studies show IC50 of HAP in 3T3 cell line in the range 850 ± 10 μM for 24 h and 650 ± 10 μM for 48 h treatment.
