Making More MXene — Researchers Unveil a Scalable Production System for the Promising, 2D Nanomaterials

For more than a decade, two-dimensional nanomaterials, such as graphene, have been touted as the key to making better microchips, batteries, antennas and many other devices. But a significant challenge of using these atom-thin building materials for the technology of the future is ensuring that they can be produced in bulk quantities without losing their quality. For one of the most promising new types of 2D nanomaterials, MXenes, that’s no longer a problem. Researchers at Drexel University and the Materials Research Center in Ukraine have designed a system that can be used to make large quantities of the material while preserving its unique properties.

Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting 2020

Drexel PhD Candidate Ariana Levitt (advisors: Y. Gogotsi and G. Dion) and former visiting doctoral student, Ameer Al-Temimi from Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (co-advised by Y. Gogotsi), have both been selected for the 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting 2020. This meeting brings together excellent young scientists of all natural science disciplines. They will have the unique opportunity to meet around 70 Nobel Laureates for cross-generational and interdisciplinary exchange. Ariana and Ameer were selected from thousands of candidates across the globe. Read more here.
Congratulations to Ariana and Ameer!

JOVE video publication

Congratulations to Kathleen Maleski and Babak Anasori on publication of a special video on the protocol for MXene synthesis and microelectrode arrays fabrication.

Most Cited Article in Nature Reviews Materials

Our paper titled 2D Metal Carbides and Nitrides (MXenes) for Energy Storage published exactly 3 years ago in Nature Reviews Materials is now THE MOST CITED article in this journal, which has the Impact Factor (IF) of 74.5, much higher than Nature (43) and Science (41), according to Web of Science.  There is only one journal with a higher IF in the world (it a cancer journal for clinicians, totally outside our field). So, the work of our team is the best of the best!  This fact clearly demonstrates the impact of MXene research in general and our work in particular on the materials science field.
Congratulations to the authors of this outstanding review article, our former group members and now professors, Babak Anasori and Maria Lukatskaya!
