A series of nano hydroxyapatite-gelatine composites with different dilute solutions of gelatine concentrations were synthesized by a thermally assisted low-power ultrasonic irradiation method. The gelatine hydroxyapatite, (Gel-HAP) nanoparticles were prepared using Ca(NO3)2 and KH 2PO4 in the presence of gelatine in an aqueous solution. The synthesised products were heat treated between 100 and 400 °C. The effect of the addition of gelatine on the nucleation and growth of synthesised nano HAP was investigated. Characterisation was performed using X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). The characterisation results indicate that gelatine has been appended to the nano HAP forming regular spherical shaped crystals of nano sized Gel-HAP.
