An iodine substituted graphene was synthesised by physic-chemical techniques (oxidationdelaminating-reduction) in order to obtain a metal free catalyst for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). The doping with iodine takes place in the reduction step by a simple route, without a specific catalyst. The final product obtained as a black powder was characterised by wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectroscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy coupled with Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (SEM-EDX), surface area estimated from BET method, thermal gravimetric analysis. The presence of iodine is evidenced mainly by EDX spectra and WDXRF
