The design and fabrication of oxygen barrier films is important for both fundamental and industrial applications. We prepared three different thin films composed of graphene oxide (GO) and laponite (LN), a typical low cost inorganic clay, with the GO/LN volume ratios of 1.9/0.1, 1.7/0.3 and 1.5/0.5 together with a double layer film of the GO and LN. We found that the films with GO/LN = 1.9/0.1 and the double layers exhibited high oxygen barrier and oxygen transmission rate values that reached 0.55 and 0.37 cm3 per m 2 per atm per day, respectively, which were much lower than those of the films prepared from the pure GO, only LN and GO/LN = 1.7/0.3 and 1.5/0.5. This study is important for the design and fabrication of a film from GO-based all inorganic nanomaterials for applications in gas-barrier membranes.
