Paper Title:
Cellular Interactions on Epitaxial Graphene on SiC (0001) Substrates
  Abstract

An ever-increasing demand for biocompatible materials provides motivation for the development of advanced materials for challenging applications ranging from disease detection to organ function restoration. Carbon-based materials are considered promising candidates because they combine good biocompatibility with high chemical resistance. In this work we present an initial assessment of the biocompatibility of epitaxial graphene on 6H-SiC(0001). We have analyzed the interaction of HaCaT (human keratinocyte) cells on epitaxial graphene and compared it with that on bare 6H-SiC(0001). We have found that for both graphene and 6H-SiC there is evidence of cell-cell and cell substrate interaction which is normally an indication of the biocompatibility of the material.
