Synthesis of graphene has been successfully done with the Hummers Method. This study aims to determine the characterization of graphite and graphene and the performance of graphite and graphene used as electrodes in primary cell batteries. The structural analysis on graphite with XRD resulted in the diffraction peak C(002) at 2 = 26.369ᵒ with d-spacing 3.37721Ǻ with the result of graphene synthesis having decreased diffraction peak at 2 = 23.98ᵒ withd-spacing 3,707 Ǻ. The performance of graphite and graphene is measured by the results of conductivity test of Graphene, Mn/Graphene and Cu/Graphene with 939 μS cm -1 , 551.4 μS cm -1 and 481.1 μScm -1 respectively. This study proves that graphite and graphene are potentially used as electrodes in primary cell batteries.
