Grain boundaries are constitutional elements of graphene grown on a solid metallic surface by CVD. The electronic properties of computer models of grain boundaries in graphene have been investigated by tight-binding calculations and compared with available ab-initio data and with recent experimental scanning tunneling spectroscopic measurements. It is shown that twofold coordinated atoms and non-hexagonal rings, both present in grain boundaries, give rise to specific features in the local density of states.
