Using Post-graphene 2D Materials to Detect and Remove Pesticides: Recent Advances and Future Recommendations

Abstract

Detection and removal of pesticides have become increasingly imperative as the widespread production and use of pesticides severely contaminate soil and groundwater and cause serious problems to non-target species such as human and animals. Recently, new two-dimensional materials beyond graphene (e.g., transition metal dichalcogenides, layered double hydroxides), called post-graphene two-dimensional materials (pg-2DMs), have exhibited promising potentials in detecting and removing pesticides due to their unique physiochemical attributes such as high photocatalytic activity and large specific surface area. This review summarizes the recent advances of utilizing pg-2DMs to detect, degrade and adsorb pesticides (e.g., thiobencarb, methyl parathion, paraquat). The current gaps and future prospects of this field are discussed as well.
