ICREA Prof. Arben Merkoçi in Nanotechweb

A new paper signed by ICREA professor Arben Merkoçi and published in IOPScience's 2D Materials is featured in Nanotechweb. It outlines an inexpensive process for the synthesis of biocompatible 2D materials for use in the biomedical context.

The paper, published in 2D Materials, outlines a low-cost, enzyme-based production technique for 2D molybdenum disulphide, a material which has shown promise for diverse applications in biomedical engineering. Developed jointly by the ICN2 Nanobioelectronics and Biosensors Group and colleagues at the University of Naples, the inexpensive, scalable and environmentally-benign technique yields an MoS2 product that is well-suited to use in drug delivery, biosensors and tissue engineering. Furthermore, the technique can also be applied to graphene and other 2D materials.
