Stoichiometric hydroxyapatite (HA) nanoparticles were synthesized by a wet chemical method. Calcium nitrate tetra hydrate used as calcium source and dibasic ammonium phosphate used as phosphorous source. Calcium nitrate tetra hydrate and dibasic ammonium phosphate solutions were prepared by dissolving the salts in distilled water. Stoichiometric hydroxyapatite nanoparticles used by artificial bone powders and synthesized by a wet chemical method were analyzed using EDXRF method. The concentrations of K, Ca, Ti, V, Cr, Fe, Ni, Cu, Sr and Pb for artificial bone powders have been determined. Besides, Calcium contents were evaluated according to the agitation time and temperature in the production process.
