Scholarcy highlights

  • The wide applications of carbon nanomaterials in both materials and life sciences necessitate investigation of their metabolites due to the inevitable contact of CNMs and biological systems
  • Article Views are the COUNTER-compliant sum of full text article downloads since November 2008 across all institutions and individuals
  • The Altmetric Attention Score is a quantitative measure of the attention that a research article has received online
  • Graphene oxide, along with other types of CNMs, can be enzymatically degraded by myeloperoxidase, an enzyme released during the innate immune response
  • Some products generated during MPO-catalyzed degradation of GO could emit blue photoluminescence and were dubbed graphene quantum dots without further elucidating their structures
  • A general chemical formula screening workflow was developed for the GQDs, which are in the form of polyaromatic hydrocarbons, obtained in the degradation products
  • Such files may be downloaded by article for research use
