Germanane is a one-atom-thick sheet of hydrogenated puckered germanium atoms structurally similar to graphane. Graphene has brought to the world’s attention the exceptional properties of two-dimensional (2D) materials. However, graphene’s lack of an intrinsic band gap and limited amenability to chemical modification has resulted in increasing interest in other 2D layered nanomaterials. Germanane is a
