Biomedical Applications of Graphene and 2D Nanomaterials provides a much-needed reference on the biomedical applications of 2D nanomaterials, as well as theoretical knowledge on their structure, physicochemical properties and biomedical applications. Chapters are dedicated to growth areas, such as size and shape-dependent chemical and physical properties and applications, such as in diagnostic and therapeutic products. The book also discusses the concept, development and preclinical studies of 2D nanomaterials-based biomedical tools, such as biosensors, artificial organs and photomedicine. Case studies and reports form the core of the book, making it an ideal resource on potential applications in biomedical science and engineering.

This timely resource for scientists and engineers in this rapidly advancing field features contributions from over 30 leaders who address advanced methods and strategies for controlling the physical-chemical properties of 2D nanomaterials, along with expert opinions on a range of 2D nanomaterials that have therapeutic and diagnostic applications.

Key Features
