Research into graphene-polymeric based membranes by tuning its structural and functional properties will facilitate new opportunities on these hierarchical platforms. The objective is to play a role on the external skin of the polymeric nanofibers to enhance it structural and functional properties by introducing thin layered graphene oxide flakes to improve the absorption behavior, and to modulate the mechanical and electronic properties and more. By modifying the polymers and including some metal nanostructures within the graphene functionality may lead to the development of complex hybrid system for advanced applicability in fields such as catalyst, electronics, sensing, storage based devices, etc. Constructing the graphenebased systems with polymeric membranes having unique architecture and functionality will provide innovation in materials science in related fields. The hierarchical arrangement of reduced graphene oxide-polymeric membrane can play a key role in multifunctional application in the fields of electronics, catalysts, and sensors.
