What is MAX phase materials?
MAX phase materials are novel layered carbon-nitride inorganic non-metallic materials with the electrical and thermal conductive qualities of metals, consisting of three elements with the molecular formula Mn+1AXn (n=1, 2 or 3), where M refers to the transition metal, A refers to the main group elements, and X refers to the elements C and N. MXene materials are graphene-like structures obtained by MAX-phase processing with two-dimensional transition metal carbides, nitrides, or carbon-nitrides.MAX/MXene materials are novel two-dimensional nanomaterials composed of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and halogens. These materials exhibit excellent electrical and heat conductivity as well corrosion resistance. This makes them suitable for a variety of applications including electronics, energy, biomedicine and environmental protection.
