Grapheneis a two dimensional material of great interest because of its extraordinary electrical and electronic properties. The main issue with the graphene’s band structure is its touching bands, means zero band gap. The graphenenanoribbons can be the new form of the material with some band gap. The report contains the theory of graphene showing some basic electronic properties. The band gap of Armchair & Zigzag nanoribbons having few arms, is calculated here with the help of Mathematica, a simulating tool.
