A method is described for preparing dense, polycrystalline beta-tricalcium phosphate. The phase composition of the precipitate made by mixing Ca(OH)(2) and H3PO4 Solutions with subsequent drying and calcining has been studied as a function of initial mixing Ca/P molar ratio. Pure beta-tricalcium phosphate is prepared with initial Ca/P = 1.2 and without any pH control. Effects of milling time of calcined powder on the sintering behavior and microstructural development examined. Grinding for a longer time helps in achieving a relatively high density and fine-grain microstructure at 1200 degrees. The synthesized powder of beta-TCP shows good biocompatibility and no cytotoxicity
