In this work, the influence of the morphology of hydroxyapatite particles on silicon substitution through hydrothermal synthesis performed under the same conditions was investigated. Spherical- and whisker-like hydroxyapatite particles were obtained starting from calcium-nitrate, sodium dihydrogen phosphate, disodium-ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid and urea (used only for the synthesis of whisker-like particles) dissolved in aqueous solutions. Silicon was introduced into the solution using tetraethylorthosilicate. X-ray diffraction, infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy indicate that silicon doping induce different phase compositions and bioactivity of spherical- and whisker-like hydroxyapatite particles obtained under the same hydrothermal conditions. Silicon-substituted, spherical hydroxyapatites particles showed greater phase transformation to silicon-substituted alpha- calcium-phosphate compare...d with whiskers-like hydroxyapatite particles synthesized with the same amount of added silicon. Metabolic activity assay performed with SaOs2 osteosarcoma cells showed better biocompatibility of annealed biphasic spherical-like particles compared with annealed whiskerlike particles while dried spherical-like particles induce high cytotoxicity effect.
