As occupational exposure to graphene and its derivatives increases, its inhalation toxicity should continue to be investigated.

If graphene proves to be toxic upon inhalation, it may be due to a complex interaction of several mechanisms. Short term toxicity studies and other evaluations are needed to characterize and understand the aerodynamic behavior and deposition mechanisms of graphene derivatives in human respiratory pathways, as well as biological responses following inhalation.
