Graphene is a kind of ideal two-dimensional flat carbon nanomaterials which have unique chemical and physical properties. The attractive potential applications must be based on the high quality mass production of graphene. However, it remains a huge challenge.An electrochemical approach is a fast, environmental friendly and easy-operating method. single- or multi-layered graphene flakes can easily be produced in short periods of time. In this review, the structure, properties and preparation methods of graphene are first introduced. Accordingly, the electrochemical approaches used for the productions of graphene flakes,graphene/inorganic nanocomposites, graphene/polymer composites and graphene analogues are highlighted. Finally, challenges and opportunities are briefly outlined on the graphene flakes and their composites synthesized by electrochemical methods.
