Main Article Content

Graphene, a 2-dimentional carbon material, exhibits optical, mechanical,
chemical and electrical properties, making it a viable
option for a wide range of industrial applications. Despite graphene’s
potential, challenges in the cost and energy efficiency of
the synthetic process as well as quality of synthesized graphene
still stand. Amongst the most popular and industrially practical
methods used to synthesize graphene, is the employment of
Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) to grow graphene on a copper
substrate/catalyst. Here we explore methods to reduce cost while
maintaining high quality graphene synthesis by optimizing the
recyclability of copper substrate.
