This review article describes the synthesis, modification, and function of lepidocrocite-type layered titanate (AxTi2?yMyO4, A: A, interlayer cation; M, metal or vacancy). Due to the compositional variation, which affects cation exchange, semiconducting and swelling properties, lepidocrocitetype layered titanates have attracted increasing attention in solid-state materials chemistry. The immobilization of functional units has been done to improve the properties as well as to impart additional functions. Here, we highlight recent developments of hybrid materials derived from the intercalation of inorganic and organic cations, organic functional groups, and nanoparticles into lepidocrocite-type layered titanates
