Graphene is a 2D “flat-mat” consisting of a honeycomb-like structure of carbon atoms with sp2 bonding character for each carbon. It exhibits excellent electrical conductivity and mechanical strength, and can be synthesized in a number of ways. Most syntheses involve first oxidizing graphite to Graphene Oxide (GO), Functional and synthesis diversity of Graphene Oxide (GO) has led to various fundamental and applied scientific explorations. GO can be viewed as an in-plane, hybrid 2D lattice consisting of sp2 and sp3 carbon regions. Engineering the type and distribution of sp3 regions can tune the physical properties of resultant GO. This paper reviews the development and scientific or technological perspective and future outlook of energy storage with GO since the 20 th century, with a thorough discussion on its status after the discovery of Graphene in last decade. Detailed structure, its viability for energy and biological applications are discussed in This paper ails focuses on Graphene-based electrodes for electrochemical energy conversion and storage devices with market oriented operation.
