Graphene-based Composites in Enzymatic Biofuel Cells


Graphene-based Composites in Enzymatic Biofuel Cells

Mehmet Gülcan, Gulseren Uzun, Buse Guven, Fatih Şen

Enzymatic biofuel cells [EBFC], are considered to be environmentally friendly energy sources and bio-electrochemical devices. These biofuel cells are operating at ambient temperature and pH. In order to generate electricity, it is necessary to use plant and animal fluids as biofuels in this type of fuel cells. The general working principle is to produce electricity from biological materials as renewable fuels by using the recent technology. These fuel cells are bioelectronic devices that convert chemical energy into electrical energy. This transformation is mostly catalyzed by the use of oxidoreductase enzymes. However, nowadays, graphene and graphene based materials are extremely attractive materials for enzymatic biofuel cells because of their modified surface, high surface areas, electrical, mechanical and thermal properties, and also unique graphitized basal plane structure. This chapter details recent studies on the use of graphene-based composites in the area of enzymatic biofuels.
