Graphene based catalysts

Author affiliations


Graphene has a unique atom-thick two-dimensional (2D) structure, high conductivity and charge mobility, huge specific surface area, excellent mechanical, thermal and electrical properties. Thus, it has been regarded as an important component for functional materials, especially for developing a variety of catalysts. In this review, we summarize the recent advancements in synthesizing graphene based new catalysts, and their applications in organic synthesis, sensors, environmental protection and energy related systems.
