One Line Description
This comprehensive review of cutting edge research brings together innovative methodologies and strategies adopted in the research and development of advanced 2D materials.

The book is written for materials scientists, engineers and technologists from diverse backgrounds across the fields of chemistry, physics, materials science and engineering, nanoscience and nanotechnology, biotechnology, and biomedical engineering.

Masses of strongly bonded layers with very weak interlayer attraction exist in two-dimensional (2D) materials, which permit exfoliation into separate, atomically thick layers. Such super-thin surface percolates free electronic movements in the 2D planes and regulates motion in the third plane with a nanometer thickness. Graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), diatomic hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN), and emerging monoatomic buckled crystals collectively termed Xenes, which include silicene, germanene and phosphorene, are all covered in this book. The integrated unique properties of these different 2D materials, therefore, provide numerous possibilities to shape the future of advanced technology.
Among the many subjects described in this book include:

The various approaches used to fabricate and characterize gallium selenide

The interlayer interaction in boron nitride and the difficulties in fabrication compared with graphene

Insights into the properties of 2D materials by the Hubbard model

Polymer-matrix nanocomposites for graphene derivatives

Nanoscale multifunctional platforms using polymers and graphene oxide

Composites of graphene and zinc oxide as photocatalysts

Hybrid structures of graphene and semiconductors

Sensor design from graphene

Graphene composites for biomedical applications

Bioceramic nanocomposites for orthopedic applications
