2nd International Conference on MXenes in Beijing

Many Drexel researchers attended the 2nd International Conference on MXenes in Beijing, China. The conference attracted about 450 participants from 90 institutions in Asia, Europe, Middle East, Australia and US (mainland China is responsible for 66 of those).  The community of MXene researchers is expanding quickly – research publications already originate from more than 700 institutions in 47 countries, according to Web of Science. Three Chinese companies form the conference sponsors offer MAX and MXene for sale.
The next conference will take place in Ningbo in May 2020. Stay tuned – the exact dates will be determined soon.

Nanomaterials Institute Has a Shiny New Home

The A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute opened a sleek 7,400-square-foot laboratory this week with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, speeches, lab tours, and alumni and international guests in attendance. Designed by the architectural firm Dimitri J. Ververelli, Inc., the laboratory is the College of Engineering’s newest and largest.

The nanomaterials lab represents a $5M infrastructure investment to advance interdisciplinary fundamental and applied research for one of the most exciting developments in materials science of the past 50 years—the discovery at Drexel of the novel, two-dimensional layered wonder material called MXene.
