Ionic liquid-based synthesis of MXene

Author affiliations


MAX phases are etched using an ionic liquid–water mixture to produce titanium carbide MXenes. The process avoids the use of any acid. Hydrolysis of the fluorine-containing ionic liquid leads to the selective removal of Al, while the ionic liquid is intercalated in-between the transition metal carbide layers.
