Janus nanosheets were prepared from K4Nb6O17·3H2O by modifying surfaces of their two distinct interlayers in a regioselective and sequential manner and subsequent exfoliation. The surface properties of nanosheets were investigated by phase atomic force microscopy imaging and two types of surfaces were discriminated, indicating that Janus nanosheets were successfully prepared.
