Catalytic Chemical Vapor Deposition (C-CVD) is one of the most promising methods developed for large scale synthesis of graphene [1, 2]. Typically, graphene C-CVD takes place by exposure of a transition metal substrate to a hydrocarbon gas.Inspired by the carbon nanotube growth using alcohol catalytic CVD [3-5], recently there have been a few attempts of graphene CVD growth with ethanol and other alcohol precursors. One advantage of using ethanol lies in its harmless, low cost, and easy-handling nature. In addition, other advantages could rise from a different growth kinetic due to its weakly oxidising nature .
