This research is devoted to obtaining of HAp-filled nanocomposites with enhanced performans. The goal has been achieved by using HAp nanoparticles modified by oleic acid. This results in an essential increase in the mechanical properties of the obtained nanocomposites as compared to HDPE nanocomposites containing unmodified HAp.
