Studies from Singapore University of Technology and Design in the Area of Carbon Research Reported

February 7, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Current study results on Carbon Research have been published. According to news originating from Singapore, Singapore, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Large size and high quality graphene grown by chemical vapour deposition (CVD) has been fabricated into an array of discrete graphene sheets with well-defined sizes and shapes. A fabrication process based on nanoimprint lithography has been developed to achieve shape tunability with sizes ranging from micrometer to nanometer."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the Singapore University of Technology and Design, "The technique preserves the quality of the CVD grown graphene and offers the versatility of transferring the graphene array onto any rigid or flexible substrate. The process is then expanded to fabricating a graphene based microelectrode array whose performance is demonstrated in the real time sensing of peroxidase excreted by breast cancer cells."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The device displayed a linear working range of 0.01-25 mM and a sensitivity of 8.8 mA mol(-1)."
