In this paper, we report the compositional variation-dependent phase stability of hydroxyapatite (Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2) on doping with silver. The transformation of hydroxyapatite to (𝛽/𝛼) tricalcium phosphate phases during sintering has been explored using Raman spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction techniques. The optical absorption spectroscopy analysis reveals the presence of Ag+ ions at low doping levels. As the doping increases, abundance of Ag particles is enhanced.
