Introduction to Graphene: Chemical and Biochemical Applications addresses a broad range of graphene research, including the prehistory and background of graphene, synthetic approaches, characterization techniques, composites/derivatives, inorganic graphene analogues, and applications of graphene. The book’s special emphasis on solution chemistry and graphene sets it apart from less practical titles in that its concepts are immediately implementable in the laboratories of chemists and biochemists.
The book presents a variety of experimental approaches from the authors’ research laboratories and others around the world for graphene preparation in the solution phase, especially under aqueous conditions or in animal serum—the most practical kind of graphene for chemists and biochemists. The book is ideally suited for a broad range of readers, including advanced undergraduates, graduate research students and professionals in state-of-the-art research labs who want to use graphene to develop novel applications.
