Transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) materials have distinctive structures in comparison with other two-dimensional materials. TMD materials’ structure is held together by van der Waals and covalent intralayer interactions; consequently, TMDs exhibit multiple phases and properties depending on their structure. This article reviews some of the research currently being undertaken to control TMD phases to utilize their different properties. This review introduces some trials for changing the phase of TMDs.
