Graphene, a 2D sp2-hybridized carbon sheet with one-atom thickness, has attracted increasing attention in recent years because of its unique structure and special properties. Recently several research publications have described the synthesis of 3D CVD graphene continuous networks1,2 grown on Ni foam substrates and their utilization for various novel products and application developments such as high sensitive gas sensor3, electrode or electrode additive for solar cells4 and ultra capacitors.5
