Graphene-based films: Fabrication, interfacial modification, and applications
Review article, 2021

Graphene-based film attracts tremendous interest in many potential applications due to its excellent thermal, electrical, and mechanical properties. This review focused on a critical analysis of fabrication, processing methodology, the interfacial modification approach, and the applications of this novel and new class material. Strong attention was paid to the preparation strategy and interfacial modification approach to improve its mechanical and thermal properties. The overview also discussed the challenges and opportunities regarding its industrial production and the current status of the commercialization. This review showed that blade coating technology is an effective method for industrial mass-produced graphene film with controllable thickness. The synergistic effect of different interface interactions can effectively improve the mechanical properties of graphenebased film. At present, the application of graphene-based film on mobile phones has become an interesting example of the use of graphene. Looking for more application cases is of great significance for the development of graphene-based technology.
