Monolayered nanodots of titanium, tungsten, and manganese oxides were obtained by exfoliation of the nanocrystals through aqueous solution processes at room temperature. The precursor nanocrystals of the layered compounds, such as sodium titanate (Na0.80Ti1.800.2O 4·xH2O, □: vacancy (x < 1.17)), cesium tungstate (Cs4W11O35·yH2O (y < 10.5)), and sodium manganate (Na0.44MnO2· zH2O (z < 0.85)), were synthesized in an aqueous solution. These nanocrystals of the layered compounds were delaminated into the monolayered nanodots through introduction of a bulky organic cation in the interlayer space. The resultant monolayered nanodots of the titanate and tungstate 2-5 nm in lateral size showed a remarkable blueshift of the bandgap energies. The calculation studies supported the blueshifts of the bandgap energies. The results suggest that syntheses of monolayered nanodots can expand the tuning range of the properties based on size effect. The present approaches for generation of ultrathin tiny objects can be applied to a variety of nanomaterials.
