Abstract
Graphene is a two-dimensional nanomaterial that has between one and ten layers of sp2-hybridized carbon atoms arranged in six-membered rings. It has impressive properties including high electron mobility, large specific surface area, high thermal conductivity, greater Young�s modulus, high fracture strength, and high optical transmittance. These properties make graphene a great potential application in energy conversion and storage devices, reinforced composites, sensors, catalysis, photonic, photovoltaic, bio-application, and biomedicines. The applications have triggered a new path in the chemical and physical modification of graphene-based materials. In this chapter, various synthesis techniques for graphene-based materials, such as mechanical/micromechanical exfoliation, electrochemical synthesis, plasma discharge etching, chemical vapor deposition, epitaxial growth on silicon carbide, and unzipping carbon nanotubes, are reviewed. Synthesis of functionalized graphene by modifying carbon�s bandgap and increasing graphene�s specific surface area is also discussed. Hence, synthesizing graphene-based composites with precise techniques captures a flagship position in various scientific developments and technology utilizations. � 2023 Elsevier Ltd.
