Symposium EL17-Synthesis, Properties and Applications of 2D MXenes

Two-dimensional (2D) transitional metal carbide, nitrides and carbonitrides, collectively referred to as MXenes, are a large family of materials with remarkable physical and chemical properties. In the past few years, experimental studies on various MXenes have revealed their great promise for a wide range of applications including electrochemical energy storage (batteries and supercapacitors), flexible and transparent electronics, sensing applications, water desalination and removal of heavy metals and organic molecules from water, electromagnetic shielding, catalysis, and antibacterial films, to name a few. Moreover, many other composition-dependent properties of MXenes such as their remarkable thermoelectric, magnetic, and mechanical properties have been theoretically predicted. This symposium aims at being an international forum for the discussion of the synthesis, properties, and applications of MXenes. All aspects of fundamental experimental and theoretical research related to MXenes including materials discovery and synthesis, characterizations of the electrical, electrochemical, thermal, mechanical properties of MXenes, and their assembly and integration into functional devices will be covered in this symposium.

Topics will include:

  • Experimental and theoretical advances in the discovery and synthesis of MXenes
  • Atomic structure and surface chemistry of MXenes
  • Optical and electronic properties 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
