The research hypothesis is mainly focused on the synthesis of hydroxyapatite from biowaste materials. Different methods were used for the synthesis of hydroxyapatite. The synthesized hydroxyapatite was characterized by different techniques such as FTIR, XRD, SEM, EDAX, and microbial studies and whether this material suitable for biomedical applications or not. From these studies, the following parameter was found out like Ca/P ratio, crystallinity, particle sizes, and morphology of the synthesized particles. In this review paper we gave collective information regarding what are the methods used for the synthesise of hydroxyapatite and how to characterize the sample with different techniques and which will be useful for the researcher who has to do the research in the same field. With this idea they can easily synthesize the expecting bioceramic from waste material and how it would be applicable for the biomedical applications
