Controlled synthesis of single-layer van der Waals materials is the foundation that enables the applications of these materials in various fields from electronic materials to chemical functions and beyond. This mini-symposium focuses on the progress made in making high-quality extended 2D materials, the integration of 2D materials with dissimilar materials, the use of 2D materials to enable novel thin film growth, and the controlled synthesis of nanostructures 2D materials, whose structures add functionalities to the 2D sheets. Central to this symposium are novel or improved approaches for synthesizing materials with desired properties and functionalities. All kinds of 2D materials and synthesis methods are considered in this symposium, including but not limited to graphene, single element 2D sheets, and transition metal (di)chalcogenides.
