Nanoporous graphene (NPG) materials have been widely studied and exploited to open the band gap, increase the specific surface area and dispersibility, and/or improve the optical, catalytic and sensing properties of pristine graphene. This review summarizes the recent advancements on the synthesis of NPGs and their applications in field effect transistors (FETs), sensors, electrochemical capacitors, nucleic acid analysis and molecular sieving.
