Alfa Chemistry Launches Mxene Materials Helping to Unlock Future Nanotechnologies
By: Alfa Chemistry
The rise of Mxene could be traced back to 2011, when the first MXene nanomaterial was reported. Ever since its discovery, the family of MXenes has grown at an extraordinarily fast pace among all 2D materials of different kinds. In addition, the numbers of research areas and publications with regard to MXenes are also on the rise.
"What attracts researchers most about MXenes materials is the combination of the metallic conductivity of the transition metal carbides with hydrophilic features imparted by their hydroxyl- or oxygen-terminated surfaces," said a senior scientist from Alfa Chemistry. "The past decade has witnessed a major expansion in MXene applications covering energy storage and conversion, environment and catalysis, separation membranes, medicine, optics as well as electronics."
Moreover, ongoing attempts have been made to afford 2D borides with more novel properties leveraging computational studies on both MXenes and their precursors.
Based on different structures, MXenes can be divided into mono transition metal MXenes, double transition metal MXenes, and divacancy MXenes. Below are some of the Mxene materials available at Alfa Chemistry:
