Hydroxiapatite (HAp) is a multiused biomaterial and it can stimulates hard tissue repair. HAp is biocompatible, nontoxic and similar with bone and teeth structure. It can be synthesized from natural sources, such as eggshell waste. Eggshells waste contain almost 94% calcium carbonate, which preferable for producing CaO as calcium resource for synthesizing pure HAp powder with nanocrystalline form. Compared to other poultry eggshells, chicken eggshell has higher HAp composition. This study aims to review nano hydroxyapatite (nanoHAp) from chicken eggshell waste and its characterization using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), X-ray Diffraction Analysis (XRD), and Fourier Transform (FTIR) Spectroscopy.
