We demonstrate trifluoromethylation of graphene by copper-catalyzed free radical reaction. The covalent addition of CF to graphene, which changes the carbon atom hybridization from 2 to 3, and modifies graphene in a homogeneous and nondestructive manner, was verified with Raman spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy reveals that CF groups are grafted to the basal plane of graphene, with about 4 at. % CF coverage. After trifluoromethylation, the average resistance increases by nearly one order of magnitude, and an energy gap of about 98 meV appears. The noninvasive and mild reaction to synthesize trifluoromethylated graphene paves the way for graphene's applications in electronics and biomedical areas.
