About the book
The chalcogenides are highly fascinating materials owing to their unprecedented ability to use in various applications including electronics and energy industries. After the graphene invention, two-dimensional materials are promising systems because of their various advantages such as wide light absorption ability, flexibility, large surface area, lightness, and tunable bandgap. Amongst, transition metal dichalcogenides (TMD) are prime systems that gather X-M-X sandwich structure (where M = transition metal; X = Se, Te, and S) by van der Waals force and arranged covalently. TMDs have a bandgap range of 1 to 3 eV, holding them impeccable for various energy and electronic uses. Further, bulk and layered chalcogens-oriented hybrids including metal composites, polymer composites, organic frameworks, and so on are showing outstanding outcomes for not only energy-related uses but also biomedical, environmental, and various industrial applications.
Hence, this book will aim to provide the bundled characteristics and features of chalcogens for the research community to carry forward the various scopes and virtues.
