Abstract

We developed carbon nanowalls devices (CNWs), on which graphenes vertically stand in the nanometer spacing like "graphene forest", with different wettability. CNWs permitted cell adhesion and proliferation, and especially super hydrophobic CNWs enabled easy and less invasive cell collection. Furthermore, collagen coated CNWs successfully enhanced the differential ability of the human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSC) to osteoblast cells compared to collagen coated polystyrene culture dishes. Thus, CNWs have superior many properties as cells scaffolds and are expected to be useful for regenerative medicine.
