Two-dimensional (2D) metal nanomaterials have gained ever-growing research interests owing to their fascinating physicochemical properties and promising applications, especially in the field of electrocatalysis. In this review, we briefly introduce the recent advances in the wet-chemical synthesis of 2D metal nanomaterials.
Subsequently, the catalytic performances of 2D metal nanomaterials towards a variety of electrochemical reactions are illustrated. Finally, we summarize the current challenge and highlight our perspectives on preparing high-performance 2D metal electrocatalysts.
