This chapter presents a comprehensive overview on the most recent advances in the formation of graphene-based three dimensional (3D) architectures. Composite 3D graphene materials were combined with other nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes or metal/metal oxide nanoparticles and incorporated across organic or inorganic matrices to produce high-performance materials of highly diverse structures and morphologies applicable to an extended range of potential applications. The fabrication routes, structures, and main properties of the 3D architectures, including electrochemi cal properties, thermal stability, and mechanical properties will be presented and critically analyzed. The potential of graphene-based 3D architectures in strategic areas such as electrodes, sensors, energy storage, catalysts, and biomedical applications will also be discussed.
