The exponential increase in research fields focused on two-dimensional (2D) metal oxides provided an unprecedented opportunity for their applications for energy storage devices, including batteries, and supercapacitors etc. However, some major challenges still exist, such as the relatively low conductivity and obvious volume changes during charging/discharging cycles. Hence, the development of functionalized strategies for these sheet-like nanomaterials is of significance. With the further optimization, these nanosheets will become more attractive for ion storage due to higher chemically active interfaces, shortened ion-diffusion lengths, and improved in-plane carrier-/charge-transport kinetics. This research field will greatly promote the development of nanotechnology and the practical application of energy storage devices.
