Mxene Yarn

Mxene Yarn are two-dimensional transition metal carbides, carbonitrides and nitrides coateed with cotton yarn

Mxenes are a new family of two-dimensional (2D) transition metal carbides, carbonitrides and nitrides that were discovered and developed by Professors Michael Baroum and Yury Gogtsi in Drexel University’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

MXenes have many potential applications including energy storage systems, electromagnetic interference shielding, and water purification. CFF aims to incorporation MXene into yarn to be used in functional fabrics and smart textile devices. Contact us at for more information.
