Abstract: Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is a promising approach for the controllable synthesis of two-dimensional (2D) materials. Many studies have demonstrated that the morphology and structure of 2D materials are highly dependent on growth substrates. Hence, the choice of growth substrates is essential to achieve the precise control of CVD growth. Noble metal substrates have attracted enormous interest owing to the high catalytic activity and rich surface morphology for 2D material growth. In this review, we introduce recent progress in noble metals as substrates for the controllable growth of 2D materials. The underlying growth mechanism and substrate designs of noble metals based on their unique features are thoroughly discussed. In the end, we outline the advantages and challenges of using noble metal substrates and prospect the possible approaches to extend the uses of noble metal substrates for 2D material growth and enhance the structural controllability of the grown materials.
