In this invited paper, we highlight some of our most recent work on the synthesis of low dimensional nanomaterials. Current graduate students and members of our group present four specific case systems: Nowotny-Juza phases, nickel phosphides, germanium-based core/shells, and organolead mixed-halide perovskites. Each system is accompanied by commentary from the student involved, which explains the motivation behind their work, as well as a protocol detailing the key experimental considerations involved in their synthesis. We trust these and similar efforts will help further advance our understanding of the broader field of synthetic nanomaterials chemistry, while, at the same time, highlighting how important this area is to the development of new materials for technologically relevant applications.
