Beyond graphene, which is intensively studied over more than one
decade, the other related materials remain almost unexplored. The research
activities in the field of other layered materials like phosphorene, arsenene,
silicene and germanene are rapidly growing in the last few years. Compare to
graphene, all these materials are non-zero band-gap semiconductors. This
property opens new application possibilities in electronic and optoelectronic
devices. The properties of 2D materials can be further controlled by their
functionalization. The chemistry of materials beyond graphene is none explored
and shows high application potential in many fields. Compared to the graphene
and pnictogen group, the chemical exfoliation method must be applied for
synthesis of silicene / germanene derivatives using Zintl phase compounds like
CaGe2 and CaSi2. Various methods well known from organic
chemistry can be applied for synthesis of tetrel derivatives reaching
almost complete derivatization of 2D material skeleton.
