Like a Trojan horse, graphene oxide can act as a carrier of organic pollutants to fish

Graphene is a two-dimensional nanomaterial composed of carbon and formed by a single layer of densely packed carbon atoms. The high mechanical strength and significant electrical and thermal properties of graphene mean that it is highly suited to many new applications in the fields of electronics, biological, chemical and magnetic sensors, photodetectors and energy storage and generation. Due to its potential applications, graphene production is expected to increase significantly in the coming years, but given its low market uptake and the limitations in analyzing its effects, little information on the concentrations of graphene nanomaterials in ecosystems is currently available.
