A prerequisite for the development of graphene based electronics is how to obtain the desired no. of graphene layers reproducibly. Here we present a method for the synthesis of monolayer, bilayer and trilayer of graphene via chemical exfoliation of HOPG in various solvents. The graphene monolayer, bilayer and trilayer were confirmed by Transmission Electron Microscopy, Raman spectroscopy and universal optical transmittance spectroscopy.
