Two-dimensional (2D) transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) nanosheets, such as MoS2, WS2, etc., are attracting increasing interest due to their intriguing physical, chemical, electronic, and optical properties. Success in development of methods for large-scale production of 2D TMD nanosheets and their composites has given great potential for various novel applications. In this review, recent progress in sensing applications of 2D TMD nanosheets and their composites is introduced. Moreover, different sensing strategies and signal-transducing mechanisms for sensing devices based on 2D TMD nanosheets and their composites are also summarized and discussed.
