DOI : 10.29228/jrp.249 Research on graphene and graphene oxide have increased in recent years due to their properties, which give advantages for drug delivery systems. They have hexagonal and two dimensional-2D structures with one atom thick. Drug delivery systems which include these molecules are able to go into cells and reach tissues and organs. Additionally, a high amount of drugs can be loaded due to their large surface area. Graphene oxide has functional groups that gain more ability to adsorption than graphene. Both of them are used for both therapeutic and diagnostic purposes including medical imaging. They also both have antibacterial activity and graphene oxide has stronger activity than graphene. Due to its structural properties graphene oxide is more preferred in drug delivery studies. In this review studies of graphene and graphene oxide containing drug delivery systems have been overviewed. Keywords : Graphene, graphene oxide, drug carrier systems, nanotechnology
