From an article written by AZoNano:

According to a recent UCL-led research, two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials have been created by dissolving layered materials in liquids. The liquids can be used to apply the 2D nanomaterials across large areas and at minimal costs, paving the way for a number of important future applications.

2D nanomaterials, such as graphene, show promise to transform technology through their extraordinary physical properties, but their translation into practical applications has been restricted due to the challenges involved in the manufacture and manipulation of 2D nanomaterials on an industrial scale.

The new process, published in the Nature Chemistry journal, can create single layers of several 2D nanomaterials in a scalable way.
