Using the Bogoliubov de-Gennes formalism, we investigate the charge and spin-dependent thermoelectric effects in superconductor graphene junctions. Results demonstrate that despite normal-superconductor junctions, there is a temperature-dependent spin thermopower both in the graphene-based ferromagnetic-superconductor (F-S) and ferromagnetic-Rashba spin-orbit region-superconductor (F-RSO-S) junctions. It is also shown that in the presence of Rashba spin-orbit interaction, the charge and spin-dependent Seebeck coefficients can reach to their maximum up to 3.5kB/e and 2.5kB/e, respectively. Remarkably, these coefficients have a zero-point critical value with respect to magnetic exchange field and chemical potential. This effect disappears when the Rashba coupling is absent. These results suggest that graphene-based superconductors can be used in spin-caloritronics devices.
