Graphene has attracted considerable attention in multidisciplinary research fields and shown various promising applications due to its unique structure and extraordinary physicochemical properties. This review covers the latest advances in graphene materials-based chemiluminescence (CL) for sensing. Chemiluminescence resonance energy transfer and luminescence quenching of graphene materials are discussed. Graphene materials, such as graphene nanosheets, graphene quantum dots, graphene oxide, and reduced graphene oxide have been employed successfully in CL systems in recent years. Graphene materials can be utilized as catalysts, platforms, and energy acceptors to improve the performance of CL. Possible challenges and future perspective on this topic are also presented.
