Layered nanohybrids are heterostructured materials composed of two-dimensional inorganic host and intercalating inorganic-, organic-, bio-, or polymer guests. Such materials have been extensively explored to create new multifunctional hybrid systems that integrate nanotechnology (NT), biotechnology (BT), information technology (IT), and even congnitive technology (CT). In this review, an attempt is made to classify and highlight recent advances in multifunctional nanohybrids based on layered materials and their related application systems; (i) red nanohybrid on life science and health-care sectors, (ii) white nanohybrid on energy and environmental ones, (iii) green nanohybrid on agriculture and food ones, and (iv) blue hybrid on aqua and marine ones. In details, the structural features and functions of the layered nanomaterials and their hybrid systems are discussed in each section.
