Symposium NM03—2D MXenes—Synthesis, Properties and Applications

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

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

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 MXene
  • Catalytic properties and applications of MXenes
  • Thermal and thermoelectric properties of MXenes
  • Mechanical and tribological properties of MXenes
  • Biomedical applications of MXenes
  • MXene-based sensors, actuators, and other devices
  • MXenes thin films, composites, hybrids, and 3D structures and their applications
