What is special about phosphorene?

There is rising interest in phosphorene, a 2D monolayer of black phosphorus, for electronic applications in the post-graphene era. Phosphorene can be exfoliated from bulk black phosphorus in the same way as graphene from bulk graphite. Phosphorene is stable and, unlike graphene, displays a nonzero fundamental band gap. Early observations indicate that carrier mobility in phosphorene is rather high; even though it does not measure up to the semimetallic graphene, it appears to be superior to transition metal dichalcogenides such as MoS2. Properties similar to phosphorous are being uncovered also in other layered allotropes of group V elements and isoelectronic systems.
