Nanolaminates are produced by a combination of epitaxial growth and self-assembly techniques. The compounds [(VSe2)n]1.06[(TaSe2)n] (n = 1–4) are prepared using self-assembly of designed, nanostructured reactants that provide unit-cell control (see Figure). Many compounds exist that are the only representative of a family of structurally related compounds, and this synthesis approach should enable the preparation of the missing family members.
