Cover Story (view full-size image): Despite the potential applications in several technological fields, 2D materials are at their early stage. Among them, boron nitride-based systems are still far from having been comprehensively studied. The possibilities of practical applications extend to very varied fields, from mechanics to optics. However, from careful observation of the experimental results, the exploitation of the mechanical and thermal properties is more convincing. Furthermore, defect control seems to be far from being fully understood. In this review, we will try to understand the limits to be overcome for future applications, examining the processes of synthesis and the related properties of BN systems. View this paper.
