Eggshell waste: An effective source of hydroxyapatite for photocatalyst
AbstractInterest in eggshell waste and its modification has been increasing rapidly. The outstanding property of eggshell waste is its high calcium carbonate content. This can be transformed to calcium oxide, and can provide a source of hydroxyapatite. As interest in clean technology has grown, the use of eggshell waste has become a focus of research. The objective of this review article is to characterize eggshell waste, describe the preparation of hydroxyapatite from eggshell waste and its modification, and discuss the use of hydroxyapatite as a photocatalyst.
