Graphene is known for the several exotic electronic properties, such as unconventional integer quantum Hall effect, ultrahigh electron mobility and ballistic transport. The main reason of these features account to its electronic density of states which vanishes at the so-called Dirac points, where the valence and the conduction bands cross with linear energy-momentum dispersion.  Due to the hexagonal symmetry of graphene, the Dirac points are located at two high-symmetry points of its Brillouin zone. However, in spite of the many promising properties of graphene, its lack of a band gap as in common semiconductor materials is detrimental in term of switch on and off the current, necessary for active electronic devices, as switches and transistors. This is one of the main obstacles that made this outstanding material useful in many electronic applications. Recently several attempts have been employed to try to open a gap in graphene, including hydrogenation or functionalization of the 2D graphene surface and which often end up with the carbon-carbon bond breaking, leading to a reduced mobility. One way to address this problem would be to open a gap by locally inducing a strain, deforming the Brillouin zone without compromise the mobility. Our aim is to combine the knowledge of organic chemistry and solid state physics to induce a switchable local strain in order to open a gap on demand.
