MXenes are a family of two-dimensional inorganic compounds. These materials, discovered in 2011 by Prof. Yury Gogotsi’s and Prof. Michel Barsoum’s research groups at Drexel University, consist of a-few-atoms-thick layers of transition-metal carbides, nitrides and carbonitrides. MXenes exhibit a special combination of metallic conductivity of transition-metal carbides or nitrides and high hydrophilic nature of their hydroxyl- or oxygen-functional group terminated surfaces. MXenes are prepared via HF (hydrofluoric acid) etching of MAX phases, which includes a large family of ternary compounds consisting of transition metal (M), an A-group element (A) and a carbon and/or nitrogen (X). This chapter focuses on detailed introduction and background of different types of MXenes and their structures and properties.
