The charge storage and membrane applications of graphene oxide (GO) materials are dictated by its intrinsic material properties. Structure-function relationships correlating periodic parameters, such as the hydrated ion radius and ion-GO interactions, are currently lacking yet are needed to provide insight on the charge storage and ion transport mechanism. We report the use of scanning ion conductance microscopy to measure the ion permeability of GO films and evaluate its relationship with the measured capacitance. We demonstrate that species (namely K+) with strong electrostatic interactions with the oxygen functionalities of GO provide the benefit of higher capacitance but suffer from inhibited ion mobility due to constriction of the GO interlayer spacing (AU)
