Abstract: The light transmittance-temperature patterns are recorded and partially interpreted for thin pellets of hydroxyapatite gels consolidated by the cold isostatic pressure (500 MPa and 1000 MPa). In the course of processing the precipitated wet gels were washed by methanol, ethanol, and propanol, prior to their drying and a subsequent high pressure consolidation.Three important processes taking place have been identified by means of these patterns: the elementary carbon evolution and its subsequent oxidation at temperatures around 600°C, the shrinkage of samples in the temperature interval between 700°C and 1000°C, and also a bloating of samples at temperatures above 1000°C.
