Graphene has recently motivated various research groups due to its peculiar properties and the research on this novel nanomaterial is growing rapidly. Electric transport properties of graphene make it a promising candidate for future nanoelectronics applications. Moreover, thermal, mechanical and optical properties are other powerful indications of its capability to open a new era in nanoscale developments in a variety of fields. Carbon materials have already been demonstrated to be promising in biomedical applications and graphene, as a building block for graphitic materials, holds a unique place in terms of biocompatibility; offering great opportunities due to its high surface to volume ratio and charge transport capability. Being electrically conductive and having ultrahigh mobility offers a great deal in electronic application developments. Therefore, in this study, the promise of graphene to build a biosensing platform has been investigated through developing a biosensor that exploits incredible electric transport properties of graphene along with its high sensitive and selective biocompatible structure. In order to achieve such a purpose, a labelfree biosensing platform has been developed by employing Hall effect principle. This thesis presents all the details to form a biosensing platform along with the promising results that have been obtained.
