The physical separation of graphite layers with adhesive tape was a novel approach that spawned a flurry of activity but the chemical separation of graphite layers has been known for decades. The chapter starts off with a historical perspective of chemical exfoliation. The following topics are then discussed in detail: the morphology of chemically converted graphene (CCG) and graphene oxide (GO); models and supporting experiments that provide insight into the structural properties of GO; electrical characterization of CCG and GO; improvements made in CCG formation and functionalization of CCG; and, obtaining graphene ribbons from carbon nanotubes.
