Symposium NM01-Advances in 2D MXenes

Transition metal carbides, nitrides and carbonitrides (also known as MXenes) represent a quickly expanding family of two-dimensional (2D) materials, including more than 50 members and multiple new structures and compositions added every year. They induce an ever-growing interest within the scientific community, owing to their unique, versatile and wide-ranging portfolio of physical and chemical properties. During the last few years, MXenes have been explored in many applications, such as catalysis, energy harvesting and storage, sensing, electromagnetic interference shielding, wireless communications, electronics and biomedicine.

This Symposium will represent an international forum for discussing advances in synthesis, chemistry and physics of MXenes, their hybridization with other materials, along with industrial developments. It will cover all aspects of the fundamental, experimental and theoretical research on MXenes, including state-of-the-art findings related to their synthesis and characterization of electrical, electrochemical, optical, thermal and mechanical properties, as well as integration into functional devices.

Topics will include:

  • Synthesis of MXenes – Experimental and Theoretical Approaches
  • Structural, Morphological, Chemical and Surface Characterization of MXenes
  • Optical and Electronic Properties of MXenes
  • Electrochemical Properties and Applications of MXenes
  • Thermal and Thermoelectric Properties of MXenes
  • Mechanical and Tribological Properties of MXenes
  • Catalytic Properties and Applications of MXenes
  • Optoelectronic and Electronic Devices based on MXenes
  • Sensing Applications of MXenes
  • Biomedical Applications of MXenes
  • Electromagnetic Interference Shielding Applications of MXenes
  • MXene Composites, Hybrid and 3D Structures
