2022 MRS Fall Meeting & Exhibit

Symposium NM04-2D MXenes—Synthesis, Properties and Applications

Two-dimensional (2D) transitional metal carbides, nitrides and carbonitrides, known as MXenes, have become one of the largest families of materials. MXenes have remarkable physical, chemical, electrochemical, mechanical properties. MXenes have shown great promise in energy storage (batteries and supercapacitors), catalysis, electromagnetic interference shielding, wireless communications, flexible and transparent electronics, sensors, structural composites, environmental and biomedical applications.

This symposium aims at being an international forum for the discussion of synthesis, properties, and applications of MXenes. It will cover all aspects of fundamental, experimental and theoretical research related to MXenes, including materials discovery and synthesis, characterization of their electrical, electrochemical, optical, thermal, mechanical properties, and their assembly and integration into functional devices.

Topics will include:

  • Synthesis of novel MXenes—experimental and theoretical
  • Atomic structure and surface chemistry of MXenes
  • Optical and electronic properties of MXenes
  • Electrochemical properties and applications of MXenes
  • Catalytic properties and applications of MXenes
  • Thermal and thermoelectric properties of MXenes
  • Mechanical and tribological properties of MXenes
  • Biomedical applications of MXenes
  • Electromagnetic interference applications of MXenes
  • MXene-based sensors, actuators, and other devices
  • MXenes thin films, composites, hybrids, and 3D structures and their applications
