Borophene, a crystalline allotrope of monolayer boron, with a combination of triangular lattice and hexagonal holes, has stimulated wide interest in 2-dimensional materials and their applications. Although their properties are theoretically confirmed, they are yet to be explored and confirmed experimentally. In this review article, we present advancements in research on borophene, its synthesis, and unique properties, including its advantages for various applications with theoretical predictions. The uniqueness of borophene over graphene and other 2-dimensional (2D) materials is also highlighted along with their various structural stabilities. The strategy for its theoretical simulations, leading to the experimental synthesis, could also be helpful for the exploration of many newer 2D materials.
