During the past decade, various inorganic material-based Janus nanosheets have been prepared and their applications have been proposed. Inorganic material-based Janus nanosheets have various advantages over polymer-based Janus nanosheets, including the maintenance of their characteristic two-dimensional shape, and are expected to be applied as unique functional materials. Methods for regioselective functionalization of the two sides of the individual nanosheets are extremely important for the development of inorganic material-based Janus nanosheets. In this review, the preparation methods and applications of inorganic material-based Janus nanosheets are summarized from the point of view of inorganic nanosheet functionalization.
