Two-dimensional (2D) materials, including graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs), have attracted considerable attention for the last decade due to their unique electrical, optical and mechanical properties. Recently, as their unique characteristics of biocompatibility and biodegradation are known, research on applying them in diagnostic and therapeutic applications has received considerable attention. This review provides a broad overview of recent reports on the biocompatibility and biodegradability of 2D materials and highlights recent progress in biodegradable and bioabsorbable sensors for diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
