There are two categories in the graphene preparations which are top-down and bottom-up methods. Top-down methods consist of mechanical exfoliation, chemical exfoliation and chemical synthesis reduction. Meanwhile, chemical vapor deposition (CVD), pyrolysis and epitaxial growth synthesis under bottom-up methods. Graphene has its own limitation and unsuitable for certain applications. Thus, functionalizing the graphene with selected molecules and nanomaterials may result in graphene functionalized nanomaterials that improve the feature of the graphene. Many methods can be done to synthesise graphene based on nanocomposites and cab be divided into two types which are in-situ methods and ex-situ methods. Hydrothermal methods, electrochemical deposition methods and reduction methods are categorized in in-situ methods, while covalent interaction and non-covalent interaction are categorized in ex-situ methods. Application of graphene based nanocomposite on biosensor and supercapacitor is discussed in this review paper.
