The phosphatic calcium compounds such as calcium hydrogen phosphate, bone ash, hydroxyapatite and tricalcium phosphate were prepared using the high purity calcium hydroxide and calcium carbonate obtained from shell resources. Calcium hydrogen phosphate had been prepared using the high purity calcium hydroxide and phosphoric acid solution. Using the calcium hydrogen phosphate as a starting materials, bone ash have been prepared by solid state reaction method and hydroxyapatite could be obtained by hydrothermal treatment method, respectively. The tricalcium phosphate was prepared by the solid state reaction of a stoichiometic mixture of bone ash and high purity calcium carbonate. In this paper, the optimal preparation process and conditions of phosphatic calcium compounds were established.
