Graphite phase carbon nitride (g-C3N4) composite structure materials, as a kind of stable compound with graphite-like structure, has attracted more and more attention due to its excellent properties, such as being able to absorb solar energy, stable chemical and optical properties and having a suitable oxidation potential. However, its application in the field of photocatalysis is limited by its small specific surface area and poor dispersibility. To solve this problem, ultra-thin g-C3N4 nanosheets are often prepared using peeling methods. In this paper, the current status and mechanism of thermal oxidation peeling, ultrasound-assisted liquid-phase peeling and acid-base chemical peeling are reviewed in detail. In addition, the future research directions of ultra-thin graphite-like carbon nitride nanosheets are discussed.
