This review covers all aspects of possible graphene doping and chemical modification published to date. Together with the chemistry of graphene, the current methods of large scale and high quality graphene growth and recent progress in graphene transfer methods are also discussed. The possible applications are discussed together with their relation to graphene chemistry. Compared to the graphene derivatives synthesized by 'top-down' methods, graphene on the surfaces of various substrates offers new possibilities as well as new challenges for chemists. This review also discusses future perspectives and opportunities in graphene chemistry.
