1D hydroxyapatite nanostructures such as nanotubes, ultra long nanowires and other morphological varieties have been promising material for bone reconstruction and therapy. Advantages like high specific surface, packing properties and mechanical properties make those nanostructures excellent candidates for scaffolds. This work is focused on soft hydrothermal routes for preparing different 1D nanostructures. Using hydroxyapatite formation mechanisms in hydrothermal and solvothermal systems, various chemical parameters, i.e. precursor chemical composition, are investigated for obtaining these 1D materials on gram scale. The synthesized materials are characterized by X – ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and laser diffraction methods.
