Abstract : For improving daily life, new strategies for preventing bacterial infection must be developed. The outstanding optical, thermal, mechanical, and antibacterial capabilities of carbon nanomaterials make them appropriate for use in a variety of industries, including biomedical and food applications. Recent research on the use of nanoparticles as antibacterial agents has shown how effective they may be at treating infectious disorders. Carbon-based nanomaterials (CNMs), which are among these antibacterial nanomaterials, have drawn a lot of interest because of their distinctive physicochemical characteristics and considerably higher biosafety. In this chapter the recent research progress in the antiviral and antibacterial of carbon-based materials and a brief description about the different types of carbon based antibacterial and antiviral materials. Then a description about the different mechanisms supporting the antimicrobial and antiviral activity of these materials.
