Abstract

Carey et al. report the surface-modified organophilic Ti3C2Tz MXene, which forms stable suspensions in nonpolar solvents. This method is used to prepare polyethylene nanocomposites, where the ready dispersion of DHT-MXene results in enhanced mechanical properties. In addition, films made from these DHT-MXene suspensions can be used as electrodes that exhibit pseudocapacitive behavior.
