2D Mxene spotlight

It’s been just over five years since researchers in Drexel’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering reported on a new, two-dimensional material composed of titanium and carbon atoms. Their creation, dubbed MXene, which is, cleverly, both chemical shorthand for the material and a homonym of Maxine, is now the focus of research at dozens of partner institutions from countries spanning every continent but Antarctica.
