Paper gives a comprehensive overview of all aspects of graphene health and environmental impact
Siân Fogden, Graphene Flagship01.24.19
As the drive to commercialize graphene continues, it is important that all safety aspects are thoroughly researched and understood. The Graphene Flagship project has a dedicated Work Package studying the impact of graphene and related materials on our health, as well as their environmental impact. This enables safety by design to become a core part of innovation.
Researches and companies are currently using a range of materials such as few layered graphene, graphene oxide and heterostructures. The first step to assess the toxicology is to fully characterize these materials. This work overviews the production and characterization methods, and considers different materials, which biological effects depend on their inherent properties.
“One of the key messages is that this family of materials has varying properties, thus displaying varying biological effects. It is important to emphasize the need not only for a systematic analysis of well-characterized graphene-bas
