Abstract Hydroxyapatite (HAP) is used to fabricate implants for bone repair in dentistry and orthopaedics. To functionalise the surface of HAP that is in direct contact with human cells a surface electrical charge deposition has been achieved by means of hydrogenation technology. This technology provides uniform 3 dimensioned processing of the specimen surfaces. The engineered charge was estimated from measurements of the photoelectron emission work function (ϕ). The later was increased to ~ 0.2 eV. The negatively charged HAP surface attached 10 times more osteoblatic cells and increased their proliferation capacity 1.6 times, in contrast to the uncharged one. The above increment of ϕ had an effect on the differentiation of mesenchymal stromal cell pool (MSCP) immobilized on the calcium phosphate (CP) coatings. In vivo experiments (BALB/c mice) demonstrated that hydrogenation of CP coatings could effect MSCP differentiation into fibroblasts or osteoblasts. The technique of intracellular RNA staining detected the actively synthesizing osteoblasts and bone marrow stromal cells.
