Graphene reinforced materials and related methods of manufacture are provided. The graphene reinforced materials include graphene sheet or scroll, graphene-polymer sheet or scroll, and graphene-carbon sheet or scroll, each having material properties that are attractive across a broad range of applications and industries. The graphene reinforced materials generally include monolayer or multilayer graphene that is synthesized by annealing a catalyst substrate within a CVD chamber, introducing a hydrocarbon gas as a carbon source with the CVD chamber to form a layer of graphene on the catalyst substrate, detaching the catalyst substrate from the layer of graphene, and rolling the layer of graphene onto itself to form a scroll, optionally with the addition of a polymer layer or carbonized layer on the graphene layer.
