The lack of a reliable large-scale production method inhibits practical applications of MoS2 nanosheets. To address this, a facile, efficient, and scalable method for the fabrication of high-concentration aqueous dispersion of MoS2 nanosheets using combined grinding and sonication is developed. The exfoliation process establishes a new paradigm in the top-down fabrication of 2D nanosheets in aqueous solution.
