Our recent article in ACS Nano: Titanium Carbide MXene Shows an Electrochemical Anomaly in Water-in-Salt Electrolytes

Congratulations to our member Danzhen Zhang and our alumni Xuehang Wang, Tyler Mathis, and Kanit Hantanasirisakul on the publication of the very important article “Titanium Carbide MXene Shows an Electrochemical Anomaly in Water-in-Salt Electrolytes.”

In the electrochemical energy storage community, the well-separated current peaks in cyclic voltammograms are considered key indicators of diffusion-controlled electrochemical processes with distinct Faradic charge transfer. In this work, we report an anomalous electrochemical process with separated CV peaks, accompanied by surface-controlled partial charge transfer and opening/closure of interlayer spacing between MXene nanosheets, which challenges the conventional wisdom and represents an electrochemical process that has not been previously identified and reported.
