Specific surface area and median particle size of the prepared α-TCP powders with and without surface modification as a function of milling time. Error bars indicated standard error of the mean ( ). The specific surface area of the α-TCP powders up to 120 minutes of ball milling did not change before and after IP6 surface modification; however, that of the IP6 surface modified α-TCP powders over 180 minutes of milling was higher than that of the α-TCP powders before IP6 surface modification. Median particle size of the prepared α-TCP powders decreased with increasing milling time.
