In this study, we compared the effects of silica and gelatin in nano hydroxyapatite (nHA) composite with pure hydroxyapatite. We have synthesized hydrothermal nHA gelatin template and silica. They (The obtained samples) were investigated by x-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). Scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM) was used for characterization of particle size and morphology of the samples. The percentage of elements in the prepared composite was determined using energy-dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDS). We have identified that the use of gelatin and silica as a coating agent for nHA contributes to the increase in the size of the particles.\ud \u
