Public reports from the GLADIATOR project

Determination of exposure levels during CVD production, explaining the sampling procedures used to test for the presence of graphene particles from CVD reactors at both a university site and that of a company. A manuscript describing the analysis of these samples and tests made in vivo with mice that had been exposed to analagous graphene oxide or reduced graphene oxide particles is in review (Spring 2017). See the 1st project publication lsisted above for the corresponding in vitro results.


Description of graphene summer school held in 2016 in Thessaloniki as part of the 10th International Summer Schools on Nanosciences & Nanotechnologies.
