Bioinspired Polypeptide Graphene

Our latest paper was just published in Polymer International! Using a living polymerization technique, we successfully chemically modified graphite, or pencil lead, to give a new bioinspired graphene. We demonstrated good mechanical properties and an propensity for cell adhesion, suggesting the promise of this material as a scaffold for tissue regeneration. Good work, Annie and Brian! You can read the full paper here: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/pi.5375/full
