In this paper, the electronic properties of a carbon allotrope, graphene with a kagome lattice structure, are investigated. Spin-polarized density functional theory (DFT) calculations with Grimme dispersion corrections were done. Bond lengths, electronic band structure, and projected density of states were calculated. Electronic band structure calculations show kagome flat-band formation with higher d-orbital contributed bonding behavior than the pristine graphene structure. The structural parameters and electronic band results of this 2D carbon allotrope show wider possible usage in many applications from desalination membranes to possible high temperature superconductors.
