Single- and double-sided chemical functionalization of bilayer graphene is performed using mild oxygen plasma. A single-sided modified bilayer shows relatively high mobility and a stable structure with a limited amount of defects, even after long plasma treatment. Double-sided chemical functionalization leads to a structure containing a high concentration of defects, very similar to graphene oxide.
