Strontium-substituted Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2 hydroxyapatite (HAp) powders, with Sr wt% concentrations of 2.5, 5.6 and 10%, were prepared by a solid-state synthesis method. The chemical composition of the samples was accurately evaluated by using inductively coupled plasma (ICP) spectroscopy. The morphology of the samples was analyzed via optical microscopy, while structural characterization was achieved through powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) and infrared (FTIR) and Raman spectroscopy. The PXRD structural characterization showed the presence of the Sr dopant in the Ca1 structural site for HAp with a lower Sr concentration and in the Ca2 site for the sample with a higher Sr concentration. FTIR and Raman spectra showed slight band shifts and minor modifications of the (PO4) bands with increasing the Sr doping rate. © 2023 by the authors.
