Graphene has remarkable mechanical properties, which makes it hypothetically a good reinforcement in metal composites. It also has exclusive optical and thermal properties, which make it striking filler for producing multifunctional composites especially in case of metal matrix composite due to its viability and outstanding mechanical properties. In the past few years, relatively little consideration has been given on graphene reinforced metal matrix composite (GRMMC) in comparison to polymer and ceramic matrix composites. This review article gives a wide-ranging overview on the state of the dispersion of graphene in composites, including materials already synthesized and characterization. This paper also focus on different dispersion methods, mechanism of strengthening, composites synthesized using graphene and its applications.
