Accurate ab initio theoretical simulations have revealed the existence of a new class of stable 2D materials that are one atom thick and flat. Considering the fact that 2-D materials and their use in many applications are fairly new, this provides an exciting new opportunity for exploring novel technological applications owing to their large surface to volume ratio. Furthermore, combining first and second row elements in the Periodic Table to form a one atom thick material that is also flat opens up the possibility for studying new physics beyond grapheue. We propose to experimentally synthesize this new class of 20 materials that are one atom thick and flat following the theoretical guidance as part of the exploratory research.
