The effects of spin-orbit (SOC) and electron-phonon coupling on the collective excitation of doped monolayer Sb2 are investigated using density functional and many-body perturbation theory. The spin-orbit coupling is exclusively important for the monolayer Sb2 and it leads to the reconstruction of the electronic band structure. In particular, plasmon modes of monolayer Sb2 are quite sensitive to the SOC and are characterized by very low damping rates owing to small electron-phonon scatterings. Our results show plasmons in antimonene are significantly less damped compared to monolayer graphene when plasmon energies are hw > 0.2 eV due to smaller plasmon-phonon coupling in the former material.
