Beyond Graphene: A New World of 2D Materials Is Opening Up

Researchers at Linköping University have developed a method to synthesize new 2D materials beyond the known family of MXenes. Their method, based on theoretical models verified experimentally, allows the creation of these materials by chemically exfoliating parent materials under high pressures. This breakthrough could lead to new applications in energy storage, water purification, and other areas due to the materials’ unique properties such as high conductivity and thermal resistance. The research points towards a future where numerous other 2D materials could be synthesized and utilized.
