Our lab is conducting exciting work on novel ways to create composite MXenes with different polymer systems. By creating new composite structures, we can enhance existing properties of certain polymers and add new functionalities. Some examples of MXene polymer composite applications are EMI shielding, water filtration, and energy harvesting.
