Abstract

Graphene has recently emerged as an important and exciting material. Inspired by its outstanding properties, many researchers have extensively studied graphene-related materials both experimentally and theoretically. Porous graphene is a collection of graphene-related materials with nanopores in the plane. Porous graphene exhibits properties distinct from those of graphene, and it has widespread potential applications in various fields such as gas separation, hydrogen storage, DNA sequencing, and supercapacitors. In this review, we summarize recent progress in studies of the properties, preparation, and potential applications of porous graphene, and show that porous graphene is a promising material with great potential for future development.
