Enormous research suggests a bright future of the graphene market. However, for a long time there has been a huge gap between laboratory-scale research and commercial application due to the challenging task of reproducible bulk production of high-quality graphene at low cost. Electrochemical exfoliation of graphite has emerged as a promising wet-chemical method with advantages such as up-scalability, solution processability and eco-friendliness. In this lecture, we will discuss the recent progress in electrochemical exfoliation of graphite and prospects for the application of exfoliated graphene, particularly in the fields of flexibleelectronics and energy technologies.
