About this collection

We are delighted to present our Chemical Society Reviews themed issue on 2D nanomaterials: graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides. This issue is guest edited by Hua Zhang (Nanyang Technological University), Manish Chhowalla (Rutgers University) and Zhongfan Liu (Peking University). Research in graphene and graphene-like 2D nanomaterials has grown in the past decade due to their fascinating properties. New synthetic methods, discovery of structures and exploration of applications have been achieved, but challenges remain in order to realize the goal of making 2D nanomaterials indispensable in real life. This special collection aims to contribute towards this goal by reviewing the state-of-the-art progress in 2D nanomaterials, focussing on recent advances, and will be a valuable guideline for future development in this field.
