Abstract


Graphene oxide is graphene-based two dimensional material and structure based on single sheet of carbon atoms arranged in hexagonal lattice or honeycomb framework. Graphene oxide is better than graphene in terms of dispersion in polar solvents due to oxygen-containing functional groups attached with carbon sheets, results as researchers to get indulged in this molecule. Graphene oxide has been attracted researchers in different fields like chemistry, physics and materials science. Graphene oxide has endless potential applications in building materials, environmental protection, electronics, medicine, pharmaceutical industries etc. In medicinal industry, graphene oxide used as antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal agent. Its potential activity with other nanoparticles as antifungal agent has come in light and became the main focus of going on works on graphene oxide. The antifungal property of GO-Ag composites was investigated. Furthermore, nanoparticles show great potential in the fields of biomedical, because of their antifungal properties. The GO-Ag composites act as alternative antifungal material. Moreover, antifungal activity of Reduced Graphene Oxide (rGO) nanosheets is also researched.
