Application

The two dimensional layered inorganic nanomaterials have drawn significant attention recently owing to their thickness dependent on physical and chemical properties. They find applications in photocatalysis, phtotovoltaics, gas sensing, lithium ion batteries, field effect transistors, spintronics etc. Transition metal dischalcogenides represent an important class of inorganic 2D materials having the aforementioned applications. Black phosphorus is a layered semiconductor with great potential in optical and electronic applications.

Preparation Note

Strongly sensitive to moisture and air. Handle in glove box and store under nitrogen atmosphere.
