Graphenes in biology

Kostas Kostarelos and Kostya Novoselov discuss the difficulties of investigating how graphenes interact with biological systems. This family of materials can be produced in different ways, which control their thickness, size and surface functionalization all of which will modify cell-material interactions. Article also touches on issues of biodegradation and safety.
