This book informs readers about recent advances in graphene carbocatalysis encapsulating the current developments in the syntheses, properties, characterizations, functionalization and catalytic applications of graphene, its derivatives and composites. It serves as a comprehensive primary reference book for chemistry and engineering students who are required to learn about graphene chemistry in detail. It also serves as an introductory reference for industry professionals and researchers who are interested in graphene research as well as its emerging applications in catalysis and beyond.

Volume 2 presents information about the industrial applications of graphene-based materials. It starts with graphene-based photocatalysis and progresses into the electrochemical applications of related materials. Highlighted applications in this domain include the use of graphene for hydrogen production and in electrodes for electrochemical sensors. It also covers developments in graphene-based smart energy materials. The final chapter of the volume summarizes the future of graphene-based material technology.

Audience Chemistry and engineering students who are required to learn about graphene chemistry; industry professionals and researchers interested in advanced graphene-based catalysis


Graphene is an allotrope of carbon, which is in the form of a thin layer with a two-dimensional honeycomb-like structure. It exhibits unique properties such as lightweight, excellent thermal and electrical conductivities, large specific surface area, easy preparation and functionalization, high intrinsic mobility, chemical stability, simple recovery, recyclability, etc. Therefore, it has emerged as the most successful entity with a wide range of applications in various medical, chemical and industrial processes, such as flexible electric/photonics circuits, solar cells, drug delivery, tissue engineering, bioimaging, optoelectronics, photodetectors, generation and storage of energy, biosensors, removal of contaminants, catalyst, water and sound proofing, and many more. The editors have made a very judicious choice in selecting graphene and its applications as a topic covering major fields of interest. I appreciate their efforts in compiling the different areas related to graphene and putting them all in a single arena. I not only hope but also believe that this book will get an overwhelming response from the readers.
