      Graphene, the new prodigy in solid state physics and material science, is expected to replace silicon in future nanoelectronic devices. In the present study, a new synthesis route is presented to grow graphene also on very weakly interacting substrates, such as Ag. Epitaxial graphene with small covalent interface bonding may enable access to reliable procedures for transferring graphene from thin metal films to insulating substrates.
