In the past few years, a special exfoliation method has been successfully used to strip a new family of 2D transition metal carbides, nitrides, and carbonitrides from the layered MAX phase, called MXene. These materials have the formula Mn+1Xn, where M is a transition metal, X is C or N, and n=1, 2, or 3. MXene is usually covered with functional groups, and thus, the formula Mn+lXnTx is also used, where T represents various functional groups. The as-synthesized MXenes are electronically conductive in addition to being hydrophilic, which is an interesting combination for ‘conductive clay’. MXenes have already shown promising applications in various fields, such as energy storage, catalysis, and electromagnetic shielding. This chapter introduces the latest research developments related to the synthesis, structure, performance, and application of MXenes. The future vision of MXenes is also forecast.
