i will show the progress made in my team with regards to the large area growth of 2-d transition metal chalcogenides on low cost, as well as wafer scale growth on hexagonal bn using molecular beam epitaxy. going from 2d inorganic materials to 2d organic materials, the synthesis of graphene-like, conjugated aromatic 2d polymer is one of the greatest challenges in synthetic chemistry. we have successfully synthesized a crystalline 2d conjugated aromatic polymer (2d-cap) by topochemical polymerization of a molecular crystal based on c-c coupling between adjacent monomers. 2d-cap crystalline polymer has a layered stacking structure and can be readily exfoliated into ultrathin sheets. 2d-cap also has highly ordered porosity (pore size 6 å) created by the stacking of slightly slipped 2d-cap sheets. due to its intrasheet conjugation and ordered open 1d channels, 2d-cap exhibits good cycle stability and rate capability when applied as an anode in an ambient temperature sodium battery cell. when applied as an asymmetric supercapacitor, it delivers a specific capacitance of 233 f g-1 at a current density of 1.0 a g-1 .
