In recent years, 2-dimensional (2D) materials such as graphene and h-BN have been spotlighted, because of their unique properties and high potential applicability. Among these 2D materials, transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have attracted a lot of attention due to their unusual electrical, optical, and mechanical properties. Also, TMDs have virtually unlimited potential in various fields, including electronic, optoelectronic, sensing, and energy storage applications. For these various applications, there are many methods for sample preparation, such as the mechanical, liquid exfoliation and chemical vapor deposition techniques. In this review, we introduce the properties, preparation methods and various applications of TMDs materials.
