Graphene oxide is hydrophilic and thus dispersible to water. Dispersibility makes the solution-based deposition of graphene oxide possible.
Biosensing is a crucial part of human well-being as early detection of diseases requires highly sensitive and selective methods. New materials, such as graphene oxide, are evaluated for improved biosensor performance.
Graphene oxide (GO) is the oxidized form of graphene. Graphene oxide is easy to process since it is dispersible in water and other solvents. Due to the oxygen in its lattice graphene oxide is not conductive, but it can be reduced to graphene by chemical methods.
