Graphene a 2D material: synthesis, characteristics, application and challenges facing with its commercialization

Abstract

Graphene has emerged as a multipurpose 2-dimensional (2D) material due to its wonderful properties and nanoscale thickness, which led to opting as a candidate for various applications in electrical, optical, chemical, and catalysis industries. During the last decade, the most controversial competition in nanoscience area was over finding the best technique for low-cost mass production of high-quality graphene. Among the different graphene production methods that include mechanical exfoliation of highly oriented pyrolytic graphite, reduction of chemically exfoliated graphene oxide, thermal decomposition of silicon carbide, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method could attract the scientist attention as an effective method of producing graphene. However CVD could be introduced as a powerful technique in this regard, the controllable synthesis of the uniform graphene with specific layer number is still challenging. This short review provides an introduction to graphene, its application, different methods for producing graphene especially CVD method and the challenges faced with the industrial scale production of graphene.
