Professor Yury Gogotsi Will Be Giving A Millipore-Sigma Webinar

Professor Yury Gogotsi’s talk will focus will on MXenes and how they complement the array of available 2D materials (graphene, BN, TMDs, etc.).

The webinar will be on June 16, 2021, at 9 AM CST.

Our Review Article on MXenes Published in Science Magazine

To mark the tenth anniversary of the discovery of MXenes, DNI members, Dr. Armin VhaidMohamamdi and Prof. Yury Gogotsi together with Prof. Johanna Rosen from Linköping University (Sweden), have published a forward-looking review article in Science magazine, discussing fundamentals, properties, and applications of MXenes, the progress in the field, ways to overcome the hype accompanying new discoveries, as well as to address challenges related to synthesis, scale-up, and commercialization of these materials. 

Publication of a review of MXenes in Science is a clear statement to the impact and promise of this material family.

Advanced Materials (IF= 27.398) Published A Virtual Issue On MXenes: “MXenes: Looking Ahead to the Next 10 Years”

This Virtual Issue celebrates the 10th anniversary of the first report on the discovery of the Ti3C2 MXene and follows the publication of a Virtual Issue on MXenes in the leading nanoscience journal, ACS Nano, in April 2021 https://pubs.acs.org/page/ancac3/vi/mxenes. Understanding that more than a hundred stoichiometric structures and an infinite number of MXene solid solutions can be made opens an entirely new world.

This issue includes a perspective article titled “Ten Years of Progress in the Synthesis and Development of MXenes” written by Professor Yury Gogotsi, Michael Naguib, and Professor Barsoum.

Congratulations to Professor Yury Gogotsi and His Team for Winning the Horizon Prize from the Royal Society of Chemistry
