In this study, metal cation consisting calcium phosphate based antibacterial ceramic powders were synthesized with wet chemical technique. The developed antibacterial powder was added to the glaze composition of the ceramic sanitary and tiles wares. Antibacterial test were performed to investigate the bactericide power of glazed surface against harmful pathogenic microorganisms. For the antibacterial test E-coli bacteria were used, because it is the mostly encountered bacteria type for human beings in daily life.
