Two-dimensional (2D) materials offer exciting potential for applications in many fields including electronics, optics, catalysis and energy storage. Recently, materials such as graphene, boron nitride, molybdenum sulfide and tungsten sulfide have been widely studied due to their availability, easy synthesis and fascinating properties. The combination of two or more of these 2D materials into hybrid assemblies provides a unique way to obtain novel properties different from those of the parent materials. This review examines recent literature on the synthesis and preparation of 2D hybrid material assemblies and some potential applications such as photo-detection, battery performance and efficient catalysis. We also discuss some of the future challenges that need to be addressed in the near future in this emerging field.
