Hydroxyapatite (HA, Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2) constitutes the major inorganic hard tissues, such as bone and teeth. Various substitutions in the apatite structure have been developed for a wide range of biomedical applications, such as the bone repair and tissue regenerations; bioactive and/or antibacterial coating for medical devices, biomarkers or carriers in drug/gene delivery systems, and the biomagnetic agents for cancer treatment.
