Nanosheets, like MoS2 nanosheets, graphene and WS2 nanosheets, are subject to ongoing research as shown in figure 1 and 2. A lot of the reported synthesis procedures include mechanical exfoliation, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) or modified Hummers method during the preparation. Amongst the most actively researched properties of nanosheets are band gap, band structure plot and density of states. Very often nanosheets are characterized by either Raman spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy or X-ray diffraction. High impact articles within this field report applications in electronics, catalysis or optoelectronics.
