Surface functionalization of materials by different methods is very often applied to make the surfaces bioactive and biocompatible. In this study the following question is raised: could well established nanotechnology be used to obtain functional nanoparticles and are they able to induce the deposition of osteoconductive hydroxyapatite (HA) ceramic. It is known that nano dimentions and porous structures influence different biological events and thus they can be utilized in the laboratory to create bilogically integrated multifunctional devices (biomaterials and sensors).
