    Nanosheets can be obtained by the exfoliation of layered compounds in a process where the three-dimensional structure of a bulk layered compound is converted into a twodimensional structure. The change in the structural dimension is expected to result in new physical and/or chemical functions. This paper describes 1) light energy conversion properties, such as photocatalytic activity and emission for nanosheets obtained by exfoliation of the layered compounds, and 2) charge separation of photoexcited electrons and holes by the potential gradient formed in the ultrathin pn-junction prepared using nanosheets.
