To study the effects of hydrocarbon precursor gases, graphene is grown using chemical vapor deposition from methane, ethane, and propane on copper foils. The larger molecules are found to more readily produce multilayer graphene, owing to a higher carbon concentration and different decomposition processes. Additionally, single- and bilayer graphene can be grown with good selectivity in a simple, one-step process by varying the pressure of ethane.
