The isolation of graphene in 2004 from graphite was a defining moment for the “birth” of a field: two-dimensional (2D) materials.
Lately, there has been a quickly expanding number of papers concentrating on non-graphene layered materials, including progress metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), because of new properties and applications that develop upon 2D confinement.
Researchers made significant recent advances and important new developments in 2D materials “beyond graphene”.
Initially insight into the theoretical modeling and understanding of the van der Waals forces that hold together the 2D layers in bulk solids, as well as their excitonic properties and growth morphologies.
Additionally, recent breakthroughs in TMD synthesis and characterization and discussed the newest families of 2D materials, including monoelement 2D materials (i.e., silicone, phosphorene, etc.) and transition metal carbide- and carbon nitride-based MXenes.
Then the researchers discussed the doping and functionalization of 2D materials beyond graphene that enables device applications, followed by advances in electronic, optoelectronic, and magnetic devices and theory.
Finally, researchers provided perspectives on the future of 2D materials beyond graphene.
