Fabrication of 3D structures from graphene-based biocomposites

Journal Article


Abstract


  • With the advancement of new material technologies and the invention of new techniques such as 3D

    printing over recent decades, the fabrication of more complex and versatile structures from

    biocomposites can now be easily achieved. Graphenic fillers are being increasingly used to improve and

    tune the electrical conductivity and mechanical properties of biodegradable/biocompatible polymers

    thus opening the way for the fabrication of biocomposite structures critical for areas such as tissue

    engineering. This review provides an overview of recent work on the fabrication of structures using

    graphene-based biocomposites, which provide constructs with properties better tailored to a variety of

    biomedical applications.
