Graphene oxide (GO) has a history of over 100 years but is only recently finding commercial applications. The work of Hummers and Offeman from the late 1950's still represents state of the art and the basis of the "conventional wisdom" in the field. During the last few years, a range of variations of the so called "Hummers method" have been announced. Our method is also based on the Hummers method, but our most important achievement is on safety, which implies that we are now scaling up production without risk of accidents.
Recent history of GO will be reviewed, including synthesis, characterization, chemical and physical properties. Reported applications as well as future possibilities and challenges are discussed
