Abstract: Microwave synthesis of ceramics offers the advantage of efficient transformation of energy and heating throughout the volume efficiently in a shorter period. In this communication, we report the first example of a novel metathesis reaction performed in the presence of microwave irradiation. Nanocrystaline particles of hydroxyapatite (HAP) could be readily synthesized by microwave treatment of calcium chloride (CaCl2) and sodium phosphate (Na3PO4) in solid phase. Use of sodium carbonate or sodium fluoride in addition to calcium chloride resulted into the formation of carbonate or fluoride-substituted hydroxyapatite.
