This review presents recent progress relating to metal-complex two-dimensional polymers, coordination nanosheets (CONASHs), an emerging class of material. Section 2 summarizes CONASHs fabricated by dry processes, such as organic molecular beam epitaxy and electron beam heating evaporation under ultra-high vacuum conditions. Section 3 describes CONASHs fabricated by wet processes, such as liquid/liquid and gas/liquid interfacial reactions. Section 4 describes the potential applications of CONASHs in nanomaterial science.
