Abstract

Macroscopic graphene fibers with strength comparable to carbon nanotube yarns have been fabricated with a facile dimensionally-confined hydrothermal strategy from low-cost, aqueous graphite oxide suspensions, which is shapable, weavable, and has a density of less than 1/7 conventional carbon fibers. in combination with the easy in situ and post-synthesis functionalization, the highly flexible graphene fibers can be woven into smart textiles.
