Graphene has already attracted a lot of interest in the industry.
Due to its excellent properties, such as high flow, electrical conductivity and mechanical strength, it has proven to be beneficial for a range of applications – healthcare is no exception.
This single-layer material, which is only one atom thick, is the first choice for many biomedical applications. With its honeycomb-like planar structure, graphene provides higher surface area, increasing its applicability for healthcare applications in drug delivery, gene delivery, and sensing applications.
Before exploring its potential in healthcare, it's worth examining why graphene trumps other material options. Graphene has extraordinary properties; it is a million times thinner than paper, stronger than diamond, and more conductive than copper.
