Abstract

Graphene exhibits a range of exceptional physical properties and holds great promise for development of novel bulk materials for widespread applications. Properly engineering of assembled structures of graphene at multiple length scales is essential to realize its full potential in bulk forms. In this Concept article, we highlight the unique colloidal and gelation behavior of a commonly used precursor for graphene, graphene oxide (GO), and discuss how the colloidal chemistry of GO and reduced GO can enable new scalable and cost-effective approaches to construct graphene-based soft superstructures with excellent properties.
