Engineering of transition metal dichalcogenides based 2D nanomaterials through doping for environmental applications
Two-dimensional (2D) transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have attracted significant research attention due to their rich contribution in many emerging fields. Furthermore, TMDs have shown great potential in engineering their properties through doping that provides structural functional tunability. Recently, environmental related applications have gained particular attention in utilizing the full potential of doped TMDs. Hence, considering their impact on environmental related applications, present review is mainly focused on the possible doping strategies of TMDs and their environmental applications such as CO2 reduction, sensing of toxic gases/metal ions, photocatalytic degradation of organic pollutants, hydrogen evolution and water splitting.
