ABSTRACT

Graphene nanoribbons materialize as a next-generation carrier for development of nanodimensional diagnostic devices and drug delivery systems due to the unique and cutting-edge electronic, thermal, mechanical and optical properties associated with graphene. This review article focuses on the important applications of GNRs in the feld of biomedicine and biosensing. Graphene nanoribbons are highly developed form of graphene with a wide importance due to their distinctive properties such as large surface area, enhanced mechanical strength and improved electro-conductivity. GNRs are efective substitutes for conventional silicon-based transistors used in biochemical reactions and exploited in the felds of biomedicine and diagnos�tics due to their efective uptake by mammalian cells. The cellular interactions of GNRs consist of highly specifc receptor�mediated transport, phagocytosis and non-specifc transport systems involving copious forces of adhesion. The presence of quantum chains in GNRs increases their potential for fabrication of technically challenging sensing devices in the future.
