Abstract

While two-dimensional layered nanomaterials including transition metal oxides and transition metal dichalcogenides have been widely researched because of their unique electronic and optical properties, they still have some limitations. To overcome these limitations, transition metal oxides and transition metal dichalcogenides based nanocomposites have been developed using various methods and have exhibited superior properties. In this paper, we introduce the photodeposition method and review the photodeposition of metal nanoparticles on the surface of transition metal oxide and transition metal dichalcogenides. Their current applications are also explained, such as photocatalysis, hydrogen evolution reaction, surface enhanced Ramanscattering, etc. This approach for nanocomposites has potential for future research areas such as photocatalysis, hydrogen evolution reaction, surface enhanced Raman scattering, and other applications. This approach for nanocomposite has the potential for future research areas.
