Turning MXene into Highly Conductive Clay

MXenes, an exciting new family of two-dimensional transition metal carbides, have recently been shown to absorb and release water on the atomic scale as seen in clays. However, MXenes are also highly electrically conductive materials. The combination of these two properties is very exciting, and we have exploited it to produce electrodes for supercapacitors with very high charge storage per unit volume. This could lead to smaller, slimmer mobile electronic devices.
