Abstract

In this chapter, we review the recent results on graphene films epitaxially grown on 3d − 5d transition-metal surfaces focussing mainly on their atomic structure, aspects of chemical interaction both with the substrate and with adsorbates and the electronic structure of graphene at the interface. We discuss a possibility to prepare sandwich-like structures in the form of intercalates as a possible way to controllably tailor the electronic properties of graphene. Recent works on the templated growth of metallic nanostructures on graphene moiré are also reviewed.
