As an emerging carbon material with advantages of thinnest, ultrahigh strength, superior thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity, graphene (Gr) is called the “black gold” and will have a profound applying potential in the field of materials science and engineering. Many researches concerning preparation of the Cu-Gr composite via various approaches have been reported. However, only few works are related to the electrochemical deposition method. As a simple, low cost, large scale production method, electrodeposition method has been widely used in industry for manufacturing foils involving copper-clad laminate (CCL), printed circuit board (PCB) and the negative current collector of lithium ion battery, where the copper foil not only serve as the carrier of the cathode active material but also play a role in collecting and conducting electrons. In the present article, we review the research progress on preparations and mechanical properties of the Cu-Gr composite foils by electrochemical method, and introduce our recent work in this area. The advancement of the process and the perspective industrial productions are also discussed.
