By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Fresh data on Materials Science are presented in a new report. According to news reporting from Pullman, Washington, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Graphene, a single layer 2-dimensional structure nanomaterial with unique physicochemical properties (e.g. high surface area, excellent electrical conductivity, strong mechanical strength, unparalleled thermal conductivity, remarkable biocompatibility and ease of functionalization), has received increasing attention in physical, chemical and biomedical fields."
The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Washington State University, "This article selectively reviews current advances of graphene based materials for biomedical applications. In particular, graphene based biosensors for small biomolecules (glucose, dopamine etc.), proteins and DNA detection have been summarized; graphene based bioimaging, drug delivery, and photothermal therapy applications have been described in detail."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Future perspectives and possible challenges in this rapidly developing area are also discussed."
