Direct growth of graphene on rigid and flexible substrates: progress, applications, and challenges

A review of various strategies, including transfer-free direct graphene growth on insulating substrates, which avoids the transfer processes that cause graphene defects, residues, tears and performance degradation in graphene-based functional devices. Applications and challenges of "direct growth of graphene'' in commercialization are discussed and addressed.

About this collection

We are pleased to present our Chemical Society Reviews themed issue on graphene chemistry. Guest edited by Tomás Torres (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid), this issue aims to provide an overview of recent developments in the expanding field of graphene chemistry. Graphene is one of the most representative low-dimensional materials and exhibits particular electronic, optical, mechanical and chemical properties. Graphene chemistry has gained the attention of an increasing number of researchers working in different areas, with many promising applications currently in development. Articles in this themed issue focus on the latest progress ranging from theory and electron transfer chemistry, to graphene composite materials and 2D heterostructures.
