5-fluorouracil molecule (5-FU) is a fluorinated pyrimidine analogue chemotherapeutic agent using as solid cancer treatment like esophagus, stomach, intestines, and carcinoma. The adsorption process as the first factor in drug conductivity systems is very important, and also in this study, importance of adsorption, for measuring the efficiency of Graphene as drug carriers was studied. In this study, the electronic and adsorption properties of the Graphene interacted with 5-fluorouracil molecule (5-FU) were theoretically investigated in the gas phase using the B3LYP density functional theory (DFT) calculations and 6-311G* basis set. Graphene due to its unique properties is very important compound. It was found that the adsorption behavior of 5FU molecule on the Graphene are electrostatic in nature.
