As one member of the emerging class of ultrathin two-dimensional (2D) transition-metal dichalcogenide (TMD) nanomaterials, the ultra-thin MoS2nanosheet has attracted increasing research interest as a result of its unique structure and fascinating properties. Solution-phase methods are promising for the scalable production, functionalization, hybridization of MoS2nanosheets, thus enabling the widespread exploration of MoS2-based nanomaterials for various promising applications. In this Review, an overview of the recent progress of solution-processed MoS2nanosheets is presented, with the emphasis on their synthetic strategies, functionalization, hybridization, properties, and applications. Finally, the challenges and opportunities in this research area will be proposed.
