We present an electrochemical method for the transfer of large-area, high-quality single crystalline graphene from Ir(111) to SiO2/Si under ambient conditions. The method is based on intercalation of tetraoctylammonium ions between the graphene layer and the Ir surface. This simple technique allows transfer of graphene single crystals having the same size as the substrate they are grown on (diameter ≈ 8 mm). In addition, the substrate can be re-used for further growth cycles. A detailed Raman map analysis of the transferred graphene reveals that the initial characteristics and imprints left on the sheet of graphene in terms of strain and wrinkles from the growth process remain after transfer.
