30 stoichiometric MXenes have already been synthesized, with countless additional solid-solution MXenes. Each MXene has unique optical, electronic, physical, and chemical properties, leading to them being used in nearly every field, from biomedicine to electrochemical energy storage. Our work focuses on the synthesis of different MAX phases and MXenes, including new compositions and structures, spanning all M, A, and X chemistries, and using all known MXene synthesis approaches.
