Calcium phosphate based materials of natural origin with photocatalytic properties were produced. Bones of Atlantic cod fish were treated in appropriate solutions (either Ca- or Ti-containing salts) and successively annealed. Results showed multiphasic materials (hydroxyapatite, β-tricalcium phosphate and anatase titania) with excellent photocatalytic performance under both UV and visible light, with an anatase concentration of only about 2 mol%. Results with such a low amount of anatase have never been reported before for a calcium phosphate-based material; this is attributed to the presence of anatase being mainly on the surface. Single-phase hydroxyapatite (Ca 10(PO4)6(OH)2 or HAp) also showed some photocatalytic properties and antibacterial activity.
