Properties and Applications of Advanced 2D Materials: from Graphene to MXenes

Webinar

2D materials with a thickness of one nanometer or less can be used as single sheets or as building blocks for heterostructures and metamaterials, due to their unique properties and ability to (self)assemble into a variety of structures. Graphene is the best-known example, but numerous compounds, ranging from BN (white graphene) to MXenes, have been produced as 2D sheets. By combining various 2D materials, unique combinations of properties can be achieved which are not available in bulk materials. The versatile chemistry of the MXene family renders their properties tunable for a large variety of applications, complementing graphene, BN, and other 2D materials.

Key learning points:

  • What are 2D nanomaterials
  • Properties of 2D nanomaterials
  • Applications of 2D nanomaterials
  • The focus will be on MXenes and how they complement the array of available 2D materials (graphene, BN, TMDs, etc.)
