An invited review article about MXenes along with a cover image by Ph.D. student Michael Naguib, research professor Dr. Vadym Mochalin, Distinguished Professor Michel Barsoum, and Distinguished University and Trustee Chair Professor Yury Gogotsi has been featured in Advanced Materials (Volume 26, Issue 7, page 982, February 19, 2014).
“Two-Dimensional Materials: 25th Anniversary Article: MXenes: A New Family of Two-Dimensional Materials” discusses this new family of 2D early transition metal carbides and carbonitrides, the progress that has been made in research, and the future for the materials. Potential uses for MXenes include various energy storage applications such as lithium ion capacitors and supercapacitors, among others.
Advanced Materials invited a certain number of leading scientists who have published previously in the journal to write reviews to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the journal.
