Check out our new “About MXenes” handout and learn all about MXenes
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. Read the full story here.
The priority deadline for submitting an abstract to the MXene 2020: Ten Years Later Conference is March 31, 2020. Don’t miss your chance to submit your abstract to present a talk or poster to the largest gathering of MXene researchers in the U.S. Submit your abstract here.
Congratulations to Kathleen Maleski and Babak Anasori on publication of a special video on the protocol for MXene synthesis and microelectrode arrays fabrication.
