DOI: 10.1039/C4CS00181H, Review Article
In this critical review, the latest advances on emerging material systems, i.e., graphene-based macroscopic assemblies and architectures including 1D fibers/ribbons, 2D films/papers, 3D network-structured monoliths and their composite counterparts with either polymers or nano-objects are overviewed. The potential applications of these graphene-based macroscopic assemblies and architectures are also discussed.
