Typically, 2D materials are discovered by mechanically exfoliating naturally occurring bulk crystals to produce atomically thin layers, after which a material-specific vapour synthesis method must be developed to grow interesting candidates in a scalable manner. Here we show a general approach for synthesising thin layers of two-dimensional binary compounds. We apply the method to obtain high quality, epitaxial MoS2 films, and extend the principle to the synthesis of a wide range of other materials—both well-known and never-before isolated—including transition metal sulphides, selenides, tellurides, and nitrides. This approach greatly simplifies the synthesis of currently known materials, and provides a general framework for synthesising both predicted and unexpected new 2D compounds. © 2019, The Author(s).||Source Title:||Nature Communications||URI:||https://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/209518||ISSN:||2041-1723||DOI:||10.1038/s41467-019-11075-2||Rights:||Attribution 4.0 International|
