The aim of this work is the substitution of the bovine bone by the natural phosphate from Djebelel-Onk (Tébessa, East of Algeria). We prepared two composites (bone/Al2O3 and natural phosphate/Al2O3) by reaction sintering. Different experimental techniques, including density, porosity, X-rays diffraction, and SEM techniques, were used to analyze the formation and transformation of phases at different temperatures. From the X-ray diffraction patterns, we put in evidence the formation of several phases. Through these results, we lighted the possibility of preparing bioceramics from natural phosphate (bone and natural phosphate). The presence of the different materials was confirmed by the micrographic observations.
