In the presentation, I will go through the making of a ´´Biosensor´´. In this device, triazoles are put together to form a receptor having selective interactions with some peptides derived from bacterial disease. This receptor will then be attached to graphene that, thanks to its formidable conductive properties, will give us an easily detectable signal when the interaction occurs.​<br /></div>
