The X-ray diffraction study revealed that the complexes possess a trigonal bipyramidal geometry and crystallizes in the monoclinic crystal system, space group P21/c, with (1) a = 8.
Isotactic PP can exhibit four crystal structures: monoclinic ([alpha]), trigonal ([beta]), triclinic ([gamma]), and smectic ([delta]), whose formation depends on the melting history, crystallization temperature, pressure, and cooling rate, and the presence of nucleating agents or fillers [2, 28].
The promising properties of this ceramics are attributed to the stress-induced phase transformation from tetragonal to monoclinic structures.
The typical m(111) and m(111) peaks of monoclinic phase can be observed obviously in the XRD spectrum of the reconstituted powders, which indicates that the powders exhibit the presence of not only the tetragonal phase and the cubic phase, but also the monoclinic phase.

The hexagonal HA form is usually formed by precipitation from supersaturated solutions at 25 [degrees]C to 100 [degrees]C and the monoclinic form of HA is primarily formed by heating the hexagonal form at 850 [degrees]C in air and then cooling to room temperature [6].
It is possible that, on adding increased amounts of comonomer, the crystal structure changes from the commonly observed monoclinic (PP) or orthorhombic (PE) to a hexagonal structure.
