    Graphene is defined as a single-atomic-layer, 2-dimensional allotrope of carbon atom.  This material has superlative properties of strength, elasticity, electrical conductivity, and thermal conductivity.  It can potentially provide a higher energy density than that of a common supercapacitor.  There are multiple ways to prepare graphene using one of the top-down or bottom-up categorical methods but the most popular within these categories would be the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) as it can produce high-quality graphene film which can be transferred onto a desired substrate relatively easily.  The cost efficiency of graphene, along with its spectacular properties, proves to be useful in many applications, including electronics, solar cells, sensors, structural reinfor...
