Hydroxyapatite (HAP) was prepared by a hydrothermal synthesis method and also silver was introduced on the surface of HAP through an ion exchange reaction. The crystal phase and morphology of HAP were then evaluated by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). In addition, the absorption property of HAP was characterized by diffuse reflectance UV-Vis spectroscopy. The presence of silver nanoparticles on the surface of HAP was also verified by XRD and TEM analysis. Particularly, the silver doped HAP showed an enhanced absorption property in UV-Vis region compared to that of the pristine HAP.
