The use of surfactant in achieving high stabilization and exfoliation graphene oxide (GO) was seen to be the crucial factor in improving the quality and quantity of GO produced via electrochemical exfoliation method. Therefore, this chapter is presenting the physical characterizations that successfully showed the stabilization of GO by various anionic surfactant. The uniqueness in this work was lie on the number of tails surfactant which consists of single-, double- and triple-tails, and the comparison study in terms of electrical conductivity between the commercial and custom-made surfactants. Moreover, the effective stabilized-GO was further explored in super capacitor application. This work opens a new window for green and low-cost GO material as conductive electrodes material.
