We propose to explore one-dimensional 1D van der Waals nanomaterial - tellurium Te - and to isolate and realize a single atomic chain of Te. Although thousands of publications in van der Waals 2D materials including graphene, MoS2 and phosphorene in the past decade, we are not aware of any single experimental work on 1D van der Waals nano-materials such as Te or selenium Se in the recent wave of 2D research. Using liquid solution synthesis, we are able to form a 2D form of tellurium which we call it tellurene.
