We demonstrate semi-metallic transport in graphene oxide layers treated with an organic acid through a nearly linear current-vs.-voltage relationship and the weak temperature dependence of resistance from high temperatures down to 20 K. Additionally an energy gap was observed below 17 K due to the formation of local barriers by residual oxygen groups and disorder in reduced graphene oxide (RGO) sheets. At higher temperatures resistance shows a negative T-2 temperature dependence. Temperature dependent magnetization measurements showed a phase transition from diamagnetic to ferromagnetic at around 10 K, in agreement with the electronic transport properties of the RGO films.
