Abstract: Graphene has recently been the subject of much interest internationally because it has unique mechanical properties. It is currently being explored for its possibility as reinforcement in polymeric matrices to make super strong composite materials. However, in order to realize the full potential of this material, there needs to be a cultural change so that routes from the test tube to the industrial plant are considered. It is clear that the dispersion of graphene in polymer matrices is extremely important. With good dispersion, some excellent properties of graphene can be transferred to the matrix. In the communication, we will report how graphene reinforcing polymers can be realized.
