I'm about to make some Graphene Oxide and in the paper for Tour's Method it uses a centrifuge to isolate the solution. However it requires $319g_0$. What does this mean, and will a centrifuge with 3300rpm suffice?

$g_0$ is the standard gravity.

You can look up the rpm-equivalent using a nomogram or calculate it yourself.

On some centrifuges you can switch between both. Some vendors provide conversion tables in their centrifuge's manual.
