Graphene possesses a wide range of potential biomedical applications because of the unique physical and chemical properties. However, the side effects of grapheme and its derivatives on a number of biological models even on human body are still not very clear. Therefore, to properly assess the potential risk of grapheme and its derivatives, we summarize the current state of academic knowledge on their toxicity.

Keywords: Biocompatibility, functionalized grapheme, graphene, graphene oxide, reduced grapheme oxide, toxicity.
