A suitable technology for the preparation of graphene based on versatile wet chemistry is presented for the first time. The protocol allows the wet chemical synthesis of graphene from a new form of graphene oxide that consists of an intact hexagonal σ-framework of C-atoms. Thus, it can be easily reduced to graphene that is no longer dominated by defects. 

Graphene oxide: a stable carbon framework for functionalization
