Main Article Content
Carbon materials and their allotropes have been involved significantly in our daily lives. 0D C60, one-dimensional (1D) carbon materials, and two-dimensional (2D) graphene materials have distinctive properties and thus received immense attention from the early 2000s [1, 2]. To meet the growing demand for these materials in applications like energy storage, electrochemical catalysis, environmental remediation, etc, the special category i.e. three-dimensional (3D) structures assembled from graphene sheets have been developed. Graphene oxide is a chemically altered graphene, the desired building block for 3D graphene matter (i.e. 3D graphene macrostructures). A simple synthesis route and pore morphologies make 3D reduced-graphene oxide (rGO) a major candidate for the 3D graphene group. To obtain target-specific 3D rGO, its synthesis mechanism plays an important role [3, 4]. Hence, in this article, we will discuss the general mechanism for 3D rGO synthesis, vital procedures for fabricating advanced 3D rGO, and important aspects controlling the growth of 3D rGO.
