Biomedical Applications and Characteristics of Graphene Nanoparticles and Graphene-Based Nanocomposites
The graphene nanoparticles have a magnificent application in biomedicine due to its various exceptional characteristics. Graphene is the strongest compound than any other metals but it is highly flexible. It has many other promising properties such as good electrical conductivity, high stability at room temperature, and biocompatibility; due to its nanosize, it can penetrate into the cells easily for diagnosis. In our review, we have discussed the application of graphene nanoparticles and graphene-based nanocomposites in the various biomedical fields. Advances in the biosensor, bioimaging, anticancer, antimicrobial, drug delivery and various other applications are demonstrated. This book chapter provides information on various metals and compounds that are involved widely with the graphene-based nanocomposites and their application.
