MXenes Synthesis

This section will introduce researchers to MXene synthesis best practices. Course attendees will receive detailed instruction as well as laboratory tutorials on how to synthesize MXenes. Participants will also learn about common mistakes encountered during MXene synthesis and receive course materials to guide their future research. This course is a great resource for researchers new to the MXene field as well as current MXene researchers who want to further advance their skillset.

MXenes Characterization

In this section, we will cover the characterization of MXene powders, colloidal solutions, single flakes and films by Raman spectroscopy, electron microscopy, UV-vis, XPS and other techniques. Experienced researchers will teach you how to determine the quality, flake size, and delamination of MXenes on the example of Ti3C2Tx. Sample preparation and elimination of measurement artifacts will be discussed in detail. Interpretation of Raman, UV-vis and XPS spectra of various MXenes will be provided. Bring your spectra and images and discuss them with our experts.

MXene Electrochemistry

This section will cover some basic concepts concerning the use of MXenes in electrochemical capacitors and batteries. We will explain capacitive and redox charge storage mechanisms in these materials, in both aqueous and non-aqueous systems. Methods for the fabrication of MXene electrodes will be discussed and then the assembly of three-electrode or two-electrode cells (with MXene as the working electrode) will be shown. The last part of the course will over the selection of parameters for running electrochemical tests and analysis of the obtained data.
