Abstract: A Lie algebra $L$ is called 2-step nilpotent if $L$ is not abelian and $[L, L]$ lies in the center of $L$. 2-step nilpotent Lie algebras are useful in the study of some geometric problems, and their classification has been an important problem in Lie theory. In this paper, we give a classification of 2-step nilpotent Lie algebras of dimension 9 with 2-dimensional center.
