Abstract: The authors present a review of the thermal properties of graphene, and present one example of a practical application of graphene in thermal management, as an additive to phase change materials. It was found that the use of liquid-phase-exfoliated graphene as a filler in phase change materials has potential to enhance the thermal management in high-power battery packs. The results also indicated that graphene had the potential to outperform metal nanoparticles and other carbon allotropes as a filler in these materials.
