Correlation between Synthesis and Properties of Graphene


Correlation between Synthesis and Properties of Graphene

Praveen Mishra, Badekai Ramachandra Bhat

The discovery of a modest way to obtain graphene has led to an exponential rise in the development of materials for the electrodes of supercapacitors. The fabrication of graphene since then has come a long way. The synthesis of graphene using physical and chemical methods completes the top down and bottom up sets for this wonder material. In this chapter, we will review the various methods for the preparation and their implications on the properties of graphene and subsequently the effects on the parameters of fabricated device.
