Here, we report the synthesis and characterization of 12 nm long, ultrafine, individualized calcium phosphate nanorods. Synthesis of these nanobuilding blocks involved the preparation of a calcium phosphate hybrid precursor containing an aminophosphate ligand. Colloidal calcium phosphate nanoparticles were achieved through the reorganization of an amorphous hybrid precursor at high temperature during a post-ageing step. These nanoparticles can be described as monocrystalline deficient calcium hydroxyapatite Ca102x(PO4)62x(HPO4)x(OH)22x, with surfaces stabilized by [PO3 22–O(CH2)2NH3 +] groups. A model is proposed in which the [ab] plane of the nanoparticles is formed by 9 unit cells surrounded by a peripheral layer composed of twelve aminoethyl phosphate (AEP)-calcium phosphate (xCa9(PO4)6 2 yCa-(AEP)2) hybrid units. Our ultrafine individualized calcium phosphate nanophosphors, synthesized in aqueous medium and displaying amino groups on their surface, are good candidates for use as fluorescent probes in biological imaging.
