A type of line defect (LD) composed of alternate squares and octagons (4-8) as the basic unit is currently an experimentally available topological defect in graphene lattice, which brings some interesting modification to magnetic and electronic properties of graphene. The transitional metal (TM) adsorb on graphene with line-defect (4-8), and they show interesting and attractive structural, magnetic and electronic properties. For different TMs such as Fe, Co, Mn, Ni and V, the complex systems…
