Nanoporous structures exhibit great application potential in the biosensing, energy storage and other nanoelectronics. As a newly discovered 2D material with extraordinary properties, graphene presents the ability to hold a nanoporous structure which could overcome the inherent shortages for most of the existing nanoporous materials. While how to efficiently synthesize the nanoporous structures in graphene and how to further expand the applications of nanoporous graphene (NPG) are still big challenges. In this paper, we reviewed the recent advancements related to the synthesis and potential applications of NPGs. By analyzing the different approaches to fabricate the NPGs, and the research trends for the application realization of NPG, we aim at stimulating further research on this subject.
