2D MAXene MXene

What are MAXenes? Similar to graphite and MoS2, the MAX phases are layered and have the general formula: Mn+1AXn, (MAX) where n = 1 to 3, M is an early transition metal, A is an non-metal elements and X is either carbon and/or nitrogen. 2Dsemiconductors Inc. is proud to announce World's first electronic and optical grade commercial layered MAXene phase materials. MAX phase has been synthesized at our facilities using our specially developed technique involving large reactor chemical vapor deposition to yield World's highest purity (99.999% or higher guaranteed), electronic and optical grade, and layered MAX phases.

MAXene to MXene transition

What are MXenes? MXenes are a class of layered materials made from the precursor MAXene by removing the A element. Thus, they are named MXenes and they have a similar structure to graphene and other 2D layers. While the precursor has Mn+1AXn chemical formula MXene has M(n+1)Xn formula. We use our patent pending formula NaF-HCl solution etching process. Special care is given to reducing the etching rate and eliminating secondary MAX phases in order that 100% pure, perfectly layered, and purity higher than 99.999% can be achieved.  

If you have specific type of new MAXene and MXene phases in mind please contact us. Our research and development team will be happy to design, synthesize, and provide with new types of materials on demand.
