Graphene is one-atom-thick film of carbon atoms packed in honeycomb structure with exceptional electrical, thermal, optical, and mechanical properties, which opened up new horizons for next generation nanotechnology-based devices. Two University of Manchester scientists, Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, were awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize in physics 'for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene'. This chapter reviews the brief history and development of graphene, considers its properties, characterizations and the synthesis methods, and provides a few examples for its advanced application in lithium-ion battery.
