Scientists have found that by scrunching graphene up into crumpled sheets it can act as a highly sensitive detector for cancer biomarkers

With an excellent ability to conduct heat and electricity, graphene promises to find applications in all kinds of areas. And by crumpling the one-atom-thick sheets of carbon into irregular surfaces, scientists hope to extend its amazing properties even further. A research team at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has uncovered an exciting new possibility for the so-called wonder material, finding it can serve as the basis of an ultra-sensitive biosensor for early cancer diagnosis.
