Abstract

Atomic and electronic structures of hydrated ferritin are characterized using electron microscopy and spectroscopy through encapsulation in single layer graphene in a biocompatible manner. Graphene's ability to reduce radiation damage levels to hydrogen bond breakage is demonstrated. A reduction of iron valence from 3+ to 2+ is measured at nanometer-resolution in ferritin, showing initial stages of iron release by ferritin. © 2014 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
