A new method to prepare graphene-based fibers with ultrahigh tensile strength, conductivity, and increased elongation is reported. It includes wet-spinning the mixture of GO aqueous dispersion with phenolic resin solution in a newly developed coagulation bath, followed by annealing. The introduced phenolic carbon increased densification of graphene fibers through reducing defects and increased interfacial interaction among graphene sheets by forming new C-C bonds, thus resulting in the increasing of stiffness, toughness, and conductivity simultaneously.
