Inexpensive approaches for the synthesis of high-quality CVD graphene is sought after in order to have graphene enter industrial fabrication and be made available for commercial applications. Depending on the nature and preparation of the catalyst substrate, the precursor used and the processing conditions of CVD growth (pressure, temperature, gas ratios), growth kinetics and regimes can change drastically and lead to diverse forms of graphene (partial or
