Graphene-sheet fiber, a novel structure of graphitic carbon, grew from coffee grounds under the condition of microwave plasma irradiation. The resulting fiber consisted of only few-layer graphene without a hollow structure inside while possessing a large amount of graphene edges and high conductivity. Due to these advantages, graphene-sheet fibers may find applications in electrochemical energy conversion and storage.
