The family of 2D transition-metal oxides and dichalcogenides with 1H phase (1H-MX2) has sparked great interest from the perspective of basic physics and applied science. Interestingly, their performances could be further regulated and improved through strain engineering. Effective regulation is founded on a wellunderstood mechanical performance, however, the large number of 1H-MX2 materials has not yet been revealed. Here, a general theoretical model is constructed based on the molecular mechanics, which provides an effective and rapid analytical algorithm for evaluating the mechanical properties of the entire family of 1H-MX2. The validity of the constructed model is verified by molecular dynamics simulations upon the scale effect on the mechanical behavior of 1H-MoS2. Notably, we report a library of the mechanical properties of 34 types of 1H-MX2. The relevant results agree with the existing experimental and theoretical results. The relationships between the molecular structures (bond lengths and bond angles) and mechanical properties are elucidated, which offers a feasible way to predict the mechanical properties of unreported 1H-MX2 materials. Moreover, based on the salt water-filled carbon nanotubes, a controllable 2D membrane is constructed for flow control and high-purity separation of multicomponent mixtures. The findings provide an essential theoretical basis for regulating the structures and properties of relevant materials based on atomic-scale strain engineering, which could facilitate the design and fabrication of 2D materials-based labon-chips, microfluidic chips, etc. The supports from NSFC (11972108, 12072061 and 12072062), LiaoNing Revitalization Talents Program (Grant No. XLYC1807193) and Fundamental Research Funds for the Central Universities are gratefully acknowledged.
