Scientists from the University of Tsukuba have just turned theory into a practical one by synthesizing the first-ever 2D boron monosulfide (BS) nanosheets, which can be dealt with layer-by-layer to manipulate their electronic properties.
Boron is a multifunctional non-metal component. Nevertheless, in the last five years, chemists have just hypothesized about the beneficial properties, as well as applications of two-dimensional boron-containing materials.
According to an AZoNano report, because of their essentially massive surface sites and different electronic statuses, 2D materials are ideal contenders for applications in batteries and other devices.
More so, incorporating 2D building blocks into groundbreaking materials can allow for higher control over their functionalities.
