Willemite is currently recognized as a bio-ceramic material for bone repair and bone tissue engineering applications. In this study, pure willemite powder was fabricated by mechanical alloying method. The starting materials were zinc oxide and silicon oxide. The results showed that pure willemite powder can be produced following 20 h of milling and subsequent sintering at 900 ℃ for 3 h. The obtained willemite powders had crystallite size and particle size in the range of 143–147 nm and 300–500 nm, respectively.
