Abstract The use of precipitation chemistry to synthesize hydroxyapatite (HA) normally yields nano-crystals with various morphology and sizes depending on the synthesis conditions (e.g., temperature, concentration, level of agitation, pH, etc.). This study involved the synthesis of HA nano-rods/whiskers by modifying an existing chemical route for HA synthesis. The nano-rods were characterised for their structure and morphology and subsequently sintered. The mechanical properties of the sintered compacts were also assessed.
