Barsoum’s and Gogotsi’s Discovery of MXenes Featured in Chemical & Engineering News

 Micrograph by Ph.D. students Babak Anasori and Michael Naguib, Gogotsi, and Barsoum of MXenes, ultrathin layers of titanium-based compounds, as viewed under an electron microscope.

The work of A. W. Grosvenor Professor Michel Barsoum and Distinguished University and Trustee Chair Professor Yury Gogotsi and their team of researchers has been featured in the October 8, 2012 issue of Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN).  

Their discovery of a new class of 2-D materials last year, which they dubbed MXenes, was part of a cover story in C&EN on the recent discovery of several different types of 2-D materials.  The article describes the process by which the researchers discovered MXenes and the potential these materials have for new technologies.
