Graphene is the first 2D material to be isolated. Graphene and other two-dimensional materials have a long list of unique properties which have made them a hot topic for intense scientific research and the development of technological applications. These also have huge potential on their right or in combination with graphene. The extraordinary physical properties of Graphene and other 2D materials is that they all can enhance the existing technologies and also create a range of new applications simultaneously. Pure Graphene has an exceptionally wide range of mechanical, thermal and electrical properties. Graphene can also greatly improve the thermal conductivity of a material by improving its heat dissipation property. In applications which require very high electrical conductivity, Graphene can either be used alone or as an additive with some other materials. Even at very low concentrations Graphene can greatly enhance the  flow of electrical charge in a material. Graphene’s ability to store electrical energy at very high densities is exceptional. This attribute, added to its ability to rapidly charge and discharge, makes it ideal for energy storage applications.

Large molecular building blocks required for hybrid materials, such as large inorganic clusters, may be of the nanometre length scale. The term hybrid material is more often used if the inorganic units are formed in situ by molecular precursors, for example applying sol–gel reactions. The biggest distinction between a Nano composite and a hybrid is that a hybrid material possesses a property that does not exist in either of the parent components. Graphene and single-walled carbon nanotubes are carbon materials that exhibit excellent electrical conductivities and large specific surface areas. An effective, economic way of using carbon fiber is to combine it with resin and another material, either a fiber or a metal, to produce a hybrid structure.

Synthesis of Graphene refers to any process involving fabrication of Graphene.

It has higher surface area with 3D framework of CNTs coupled with high edge density of Graphene. Chemical modification of carbon nanotubes are covalent and non-covalent modifications due to their hydrophobic nature and improved adhesion to a bulk polymer through chemical attachment. Applications of the carbon nanotubes are composite fibre, cranks, baseball bats, Microscopic probes, tissue engineering, energy storagesuper capacitor etc. Nanotubes are categorized as single-walled and multi-walled nanotubes with related structures.

Carbon materials touch every aspect of our daily life in some way or the other. Regarding todays environmental challenges carbon may be the key elemental component, usually blended into notations such as “carbon cycle” or “carbon footprint”. Interestingly, not being used as “fossil fuel”, carbon materials also considerably contribute to the field of sustainable energy. They are central to most electrochemical energy-related applications, i.e. they also help to generate, store, transport and save energy. Nanostructured carbon is already used in fuel cells, conventional batteries and super capacitors. Electric double layer capacitors (EDLC, also called super capacitors) are energy storage devices based on the electrical adsorption of ions at the electrode/electrolyte interface (non-Faradaic process). Porous carbons are being used widely as electrode materials for super capacitors because of their higher specific surface area and relatively good electrical conductivity.

Nano carbons are among the most promising materials developed in the past years. Nano carbon materials include fullerenes, carbon nanotubes (CNT), carbon nanofibers (CNF), nanodiamond, onions and various hybrid forms and 3D structures based on this structural principle. Nano carbon materials such as carbon nanotubes (CNT's) and Graphene have many extraordinary properties, such as a factor of 1000 times higher mobility and 10 times larger saturation velocity than Si. Several years ago these materials were available in milligram-scale quantities. Now many of them are produced in tonnes each year.

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are cylinders of one or more layers of Graphene (lattice). Diameters of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) are typically 0.8 to 2 nm and 5 to 20 nm, respectively, although MWNT diameters can exceed 100 nm. CNT lengths range from less than 100 nm to 0.5 m. Individual CNT walls can be of metallic or semiconducting component depending on the orientation of the lattice with respect to the tube axis, which is called chirality. Carbon nanotube production exceeds several thousand tons per year, and are used for applications in energy storage, automotive parts, boat hulls, sporting goods, water filters, thin-film electronics, coatings, actuators and electromagnetic shields, health care and environmental protection.

Graphene-enhanced lithium ion batteries could be used in higher energy usage applications now, like in smartphones, laptops and tablet PCs. Graphene has a great potential of being used at a low cost, flexible and highly efficient photovoltaic devices due to its excellent electron-transport properties and carrier mobility. Single or multi-layered Graphene, with less agglomeration, exhibit a higher effective surface area and better properties. In hydrogen storage, hydrogen plays an important role as energy carriers. As a fuel of choice, it is light weight, contains high energy density and emits no-harmful chemical by-products, therefore hydrogen is considered as a green energyGraphene oxide has excellent characteristics as a nanomaterial for drug delivery. Using the fluorescence super-quenching ability of graphene, novel fluorescence resonance energy transfer biosensors could be developed. Cancer therapy is made by exploration of graphene in drug delivery by in vitro tests. For clinical cancer and other disease treatment, in vivo behaviour of graphene loaded with drugs is observed to be implemented.
