Applications of Graphene in Biomedical

Aside from electronics, it has been hypothesized that graphene can be utilized in a number of medical applications. This is due to its unique properties; a two-dimensional planar structure, a large surface area, good biocompatibility and good chemical stability.

There are vast possibilities for graphene in medicine.

Graphene's unique properties allow for ground-breaking biomedical applications. Targeted drug delivery; improved brain penetration; DIY health-testing kits and 'smart' implants.
