In recent years, the progress of doped carbon catalysts (such as graphene-based nanocomposites), has attracted the tremendous attention of the scientific community because of their broad area of applications involving unique mechanical, electrical and industrial chemical production processes. The catalytic nature of metaldoped graphene-based nanocomposites has significantly improved, and provides alternatives to traditional transition metal-based catalysts. In addition, the progress of simple and easy synthetic approaches for graphene-based nanocomposites provides a wide range of opportunities for the synthesis of graphene-based nanocomposites via incorporating various metal or polymer-based nanomaterials for diverse applications. In this context, the recent development in the synthesis of graphene-based nanocomposites, their properties and applications are summarized in this chapter. The future insights and challenges towards the design and utilization of graphene-based nanocomposites with decent stability and enhanced catalytic performance are also outlined in this chapter.

Keywords: Electrochemical Biosensor, Graphene, Graphene Nanocomposite Catalysts, Graphene Oxide, Reduced Graphene Oxide.
