Bacteria-killing graphene flakes may prevent implant infections

Whenever a medical implant is introduced to the human body, there's a chance that its surface will be colonized by bacteria. In some cases, such infections require the implant to be removed. It's recently been discovered, however, that coating implants with vertical graphene flakes could help keep that from happening...
