Graphene and Graphene Oxide as Nanomaterials for Medicine and Biology Application

Subhashree Priyadarsini et al. Graphene- and graphene oxide-based nanomaterials have gained broad interests in research because of their unique physiochemical properties. The 2D allotropic structure allows it to be used in various biological fields. The biomedical applications of graphene and its composite include its use in gene and small molecular drug delivery. It is further […]

Hydrogels for Biomedical Applications: Their Characteristics and the Mechanisms behind Them

Qinyuan Chai, Yang Jiao and Xinjun Yu Hydrogels are hydrophilic, three-dimensional networks that are able to absorb largequantities of water or biological fluids, and thus have the potential to be used as prime candidatesfor biosensors, drug delivery vectors, and carriers or matrices for cells in tissue engineering.In this critical review article, advantages of the hydrogels […]
