Highly conductive chemically-derived graphene can be synthesized using an efficient two-step method starting from graphene oxide. The key strategy involves the use of a CVD process to heal defects contained within the monolayers, which imparts a two order of magnitude enhancement of electrical conductivity over the merely reduced samples.
