HAP is the main biomaterial used in the field of orthopedic applications. In the present qwork synthesis and characterization of pure and doped Hap, nanoparticles were performed. Biomaterials were selected for the present study in view of their bone replacement applications.The main proposition of this work is to synthesize the Hap nanoparticles by microwave-assisted co-precipitation method under room temperature. The prepared samples are characterized by using various techniques such as powder XRD, SEM, EDAX, UV-Visible, PL and FT-IR method. The antimicrobial analysis was performed to study the crystalline size, microstrain and dislocation density of the samples.SEM reveals the morphology of the samples. The composition of the samples was revealed by EDAX, UV, and PL reveal the optical property of the samples. Functional groups are determined by FTIR. Zone of inhibition for gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria was shown by antimicrobial analysis
