Graphene, in its one atom thick carbon sheet form, is a special 2 dimensional nanomaterial that bridges the chemical and physical worlds. On the one hand, graphene can be seen as a chemical, a gigantic two-dimensional monomer, allowing organic chemistry to investigate its use as a reactive platform and composite and polymer science to investigate its functionalized forms into dispersed, percolated or continuous architectures, ranging from randomly to highly
