Abstract In this work microporous hydroxyapatite (HAp) ceramics were fabricated using lycopodium as a porosifier. The samples were produced by uniaxial pressing and then heating at high temperatures, 1100°C and 1200°C, to burn-out porogens and sintering. The obtained samples had porosity over the variable range of 12 to 45% with different pore size ranging from 0.2 to 25 μm. Chemical and physical characterization was determined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and bending strength measurements. The bending strength of the prepared samples was in the range of 1.97–21.81 MPa.
