Atomically thin two-dimensional materials for functional electrodes of electrochemical devices

A review
Review

Abstract

The development of atomically thin semiconductor nanocrystals for electrodes of various electrochemical devices is probably one of the fastest growing fields in the modern condensed conductive matter research. Two-dimensional (2D) nanocrystals have been established as a large class of nanostructures with unusual properties. In this study, specific characteristic, features and technologies of making the 2D nanocrystals including graphene for composite nanostructured electrodes of electrochemical devices are reviewed.
