Functionalization of any substrate using covalently modified large area CVD graphene
We report a novel route for the functionalization of any substrates, including chemically inert substrates. CVD grown graphene is electrochemically functionalized with p-(N-maleimido)phenyl residues and consecutively transferred to various substrates. The transfer process is shown to be without noticeable loss. The functional layer exhibits a thickness of appx. 4.5 nm.
