Since their discovery, MXenes have shown promising properties for energy storage. In our group, we use different MXene compositions as electrodes and other components in different electrochemical systems such as supercapacitors and batteries. This work aims to understand the electrochemical and charge storage behavior of MXenes in various electrolytes, including aqueous, water-in-salt, and organic electrolytes. Our goal is to gain a deep understanding of the pseudocapacitive and intercalation properties of MXenes in these systems and optimize and design electrode architectures for fast charge storage systems. In addition to electrochemical energy storage, our lab investigates the use of MXenes in hydrogen energy storage.
