Book Description

Monoelemental 2D materials called Xenes have a graphene-like structure, intra-layer covalent bond, and weak van der Waals forces between layers. Materials composed of different groups of elements have different structures and rich properties, making Xenes materials a potential candidate for the next generation of 2D materials. This book describes the structure, properties, and applications of Xenes by classification and section. It is divided into two sections: the first covers the structure and classification of single-element 2D materials, according to the different main groups of monoelemental materials of different components of the properties and applications of detailed description. The second discusses the structure, properties, and applications of advanced 2D Xenes materials, which are composed of heterogeneous structures, produced by defects and regulated by the field. • Systematically details single element materials according to the main groups of the constituent elements • Classifies the most effective and widely studied 2D Xenes materials • Expounds upon changes in properties and improvements in applications by different regulation mechanisms • Discusses the significance of 2D single element materials where structural characteristics are closely combined with different preparation methods and the relevant theoretical properties complement each other with practical applications Aimed at researchers and advanced students in materials science and engineering, this book offers a broad view of current knowledge in the emerging and promising field of 2D monoelemental materials.
