Mohamed Alhabeb, Katie Van Aken and our alum Michael Naguib are prominently featured in the article. Congratulations!
Congratulations to Dr. Babak Anasori on having his Grassroots Grant Proposal to the Materials Research Society Foundation selected for funding.
Congratulations to PhD Candidate, Mohamed Alhabeb, on the prestigious Joseph Carleone Endowed Awardfor the 16-17 Academic Year. Mohamed has done groundbreaking work on synthesis of MXenes, becoming the world-leading expert in that field.
It’s been just over five years since researchers in Drexel’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering reported on a new, two-dimensional material composed of titanium and carbon atoms. Their creation, dubbed MXene, which is, cleverly, both chemical shorthand for the material and a homonym of Maxine, is now the focus of research at dozens of partner institutions from countries spanning every continent but Antarctica. And a feature story, on the cover of the latest edition of Nature Reviews Materials, suggests that even more should take up the pursuit.

Our colleagues from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln produced a press release on our recent joint publication:
A. Lipatov, M. Alhabeb, M. R. Lukatskaya, A. Boson, Y. Gogotsi, A. Sinitskii, Effect of synthesis on quality, electronic properties and environmental stability of individual Ti3C2MXene flakes, Advanced Electronic Materials, 2 (12) 1600255 (2016)
A new collaborative paper has been published in ACS Nano. This work opens the road to synthesis of 2D and ultra-thin nitrides of transition metals. Synthesis of nitrides from MAX phases has been difficult. In the attached paper, we propose an alternative route to producing nanometer-thin nitride sheets in large quantities:
