An essentially new method of synthesis of apatite - based materials in saline melts at moderate temperatures (350-700°C) is developed. The method combines in itself the advantages of the ways of hyper-thermal hydrolysis (a "dry" method) and precipitation from aqueous solutions (a "wet" method). As a reaction media the melts of the equimolar NaCl-KCl system as well as eutectics of the NaNO3 - KNO3 composition were used. Silver-containing and Palladium-containing apatites were obtained. Those can be used as a materials with antimicrobial and antitumor properties. The obtained materials were identified with a method of the X-ray diffraction phase analysis, and IR - spectroscopy. The developed method of synthesis of the biocompatible nanoscale materials and composites from them is a rather effective and accessible way to practical usage in dentistry, orthopaedics and other areas of medicine. © 2013 IFMBE.
