Graphene (GR), a single-atom-thick nanostructured sheet arranged in a two-dimensional honeycomb lattice, has attracted tremendous research interest due to its distinctive properties, such as superior chemical and mechanical stability, large specific surface area, and extraordinary electronic transport properties. Owing to these unique properties, GR can greatly improve the performance of electrochemical responses and have attracted considerable attention in the field of electrochemistry and bioelectrochemistry. The application of GR as a kind of novel electrochemical sensing material is a most promising research hotspot. In this chapter, we examine the use of GR and GR-derived materials in electrochemical sensors. In the first part, we will overview those aspects of GR’s properties most relevant to electrochemical applications and then examine the latest advances in electrochemical sensors made from GR derivatives and in the second part of the chapter, the effects of GR as an electrode modifier will be compared with other modifiers.
