Graphene is newly invented material which is very important in condensed matter physics and material science. Graphene has high crystal and electronics properties. Graphene is a two dimentional crystal made up of only carbon atoms. Graphene does not requires any proof of its importance because of its electronic spectrum, grapheme is emerging as a new standard of “relativistic” condensed matter physics. It is 100 times stronger than steel. This review deals with the synthesis methods, characterizations and applications.
