Graphene oxide (GO) has attracted tremendous attention in membrane-based separation field as it can filter ions and molecules. Recently, GO-based materials have emerged as excellent modifiers for vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) application. Its high mechanical and chemical stability, nearly frictionless surface, high flexibility, and low cost make GO-based materials as proper materials for the membranes in VRFB. In VRFB, a membrane acts as the key component to determine the performance. Therefore, employing low vanadium ion permeability with excellent stability membrane in vanadium electrolytes is important to ensure high battery performance. Herein, recent progress of GO-modified membranes for VRFB is briefly reviewed. This review begins with current membranes used for VRFB, followed by the challenges faced by the membranes. In addition, the transport mechanism of vanadium ion and the stability properties of GO-modified membranes are also discussed to enlighten the role of GO in the modified membranes.
