Magnetic Weyl semimetals attract considerable interest not only for their topological quantum phenomena but also as an emerging materials class for realizing quantum anomalous Hall effect in the two-dimensional limit. A shandite compound Co3Sn2S2 with layered kagome-lattices is one such material, where vigorous efforts have been devoted to synthesize the two-dimensional crystal. Here, we report a synthesis of Co3Sn2S2 thin flakes with a thickness of 250 nm by chemical vapor transport method. We find that this facile bottom-up approach allows the formation of large-sized Co3Sn2S2 thin flakes of high-quality, where we identify the largest electron mobility (∼2600 cm2 V-1 s-1) among magnetic topological semimetals, as well as the large anomalous Hall conductivity (∼1400 ω-1 cm-1) and anomalous Hall angle (∼32%) arising from the Berry curvature. Our study provides a viable platform for studying high-quality thin flakes of magnetic Weyl semimetal and stimulate further research on unexplored topological phenomena in the two-dimensional limit.
