Among the growing research to reduce global warming, two-dimensional (2D) materials have earned significant attention for their role in converting CO2 to synthetic fuels and value-added chemicals. 2D materials are promising platform materials because they have superior properties on mechanical strength, electrical and thermal conductivity, and chemical and thermal stability. This chapter summarizes the recent achievements of 2D materials in CO2 utilization via thermal catalytic processes including hydrogenation, methanation, and dry reforming. The chapter also includes the conversion of CO2 to carbon materials like graphene or polymer, and modification strategies to improve the catalytic activity of CO2 reduction. Moreover, the bottlenecks, challenges, and principles of design and application of these materials are discussed. Prospects and directions of 2D materials development are highlighted. Suitable 2D materials are recommended for particular catalytic reactions in CO2 reduction based on their properties and performance.
