Abstract: Graphene is a single atomic layer of carbon atoms, and has exceptional electrical, mechanical, and optical characteristics. It has been broadly utilized in the fields of material science, physics, chemistry, device fabrication, information, and biology. In this review paper, we briefly investigate the ideas, structure, characteristics, and fabrication techniques for graphene applications in lithium ion batteries (LIBs). In LIBs, a constant three-dimensional (3D) conductive system can adequately enhance the transportation of electrons and ions of the electrode material. The use of 3D graphene and graphene-expansion electrode materials can significantly upgrade LIBs characteristics to give higher electric conductivity, greater capacity, and good stability. This review demonstrates several recent advances in graphenecontaining LIB electrode materials, and addresses probable trends into the future.
