Two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials, such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), receive a lot of attention due to their attractive properties and wide applications. Their performance can be further enhanced by the formation of hybrid structures with other functional materials. In this review, the latest studies in 2D nanomaterial-based hybrid nanostructures are discussed, focusing on their preparation methods, properties, and applications.

Y. Q. Liu, P. A. Hu and co-workers reveal on page 1559 a strategy for enhancing the performance of graphenebased devices by using an hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) monolayer grown by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) as a dielectric layer. The strategy allows for effective size control of single-crystal monolayer h-BN domains, direct optical visualization of h-BN domains, and a clean h-BN surface. This study indicates that the interface between the graphene and h-BN monolayer plays a critical role in determining the device performance.

Flame transport synthesis (FTS) offers a unique fabrication technique for different nano-microtetrapods and their interconnected networks. Using the FTS method, interconnected ZnO nanotetrapod networks are fabricated directly bridging two patterned electrodes in a chip. It offers rapid and cost-effective synthesis with a direct integration of nano-microtetrapod networks in a chip, ready for device applications. Fast UV-detection response from these interconnected ZnO nanotetrapod networks is demonstrated by R. Adelung, Y. K. Mishra and co-workers on page 1541.
