nano-reactor, 2D (rus. нанореактор, 2D) — a type of nanoreactor whose size in one of the dimensions does not exceed 100 nm and is significantly greater in two other dimensions.


The most common classes of substances used as 2D-reactors are layered double hydroxides and various graphite derivatives. Unlike 1D-reactors and 3D-reactors, 2D-reactors are generally used to produce flat (nominally two-dimensional) nanoparticles of matrix phase, including graphene, by intercalation of reagents in the interlayer space and subsequent heat or chemical treatment of the material that leads to an increase in the volume of intercalated reagent, as well as exfoliation and delamination of the matrix.
