The book presents recent progress on relevant topics: Toxicity of chemicals, importance of electrochemical sensors, different types of graphene-based nanomaterials, Neurotoxins and electroanalytical detection of toxic chemicals.
Graphene-based nanocomposites are very useful in detecting toxic chemicals such as heavy metals, inorganic anions, phenolic compounds, pesticides, and chemical warfare agents. The book presents recent progress on relevant topics: Toxicity of chemicals, importance of electrochemical sensors, different types of graphene-based nanomaterials, Neurotoxins and electroanalytical detection of toxic chemicals.
