Scholarcy highlights

  • Graphene is one of the most promising materials in nanotechnology
  • Even though the use of a single graphene sheet as a catalytic support has not yet been reported, some promising results have already been obtained with few-layer graphene
  • We will focus our attention on the properties and characterization techniques of graphene that are of relevance to catalysis, with emphasis on adsorption
  • After presenting an overview of the most common and effective preparation methods, we will discuss the catalytic application of graphene and graphene-based composites, with particular attention on energy conversion and photocatalysis
