Mo2Ga2C: A New Ternary Nanolaminated Carbide.
The new hexagonal title phase is prepared by heating a 2:1 Mo/C powder mixture in flowing Ar at 1000 °C for 12 h.
Synthesis and ab initio calculations of nanolaminated (Cr,Mn)2AlC compounds
We present an ab initio theoretical analysis of the temperature-dependent stability of inherently nanolaminated (Cr1−xMnx)2AlC. The results indicate energetic stability over the composition range x
Two‐Dimensional Nanocrystals Produced by Exfoliation of Ti3AlC2.
Treatment of Ti3AlC2 powders in HF (2 h) results in exfoliation and formation of two-dimensional Ti3C2 layers with OH and/or F surface groups and conical scrolls.
Thin film synthesis and characterization of a chemically ordered magnetic nanolaminate (V,Mn)3GaC2
We report on synthesis and characterization of a new magnetic nanolaminate (V,Mn)3GaC2, which is the first magnetic MAX phase of a 312 stoichiometry. Atomically resolved energy dispersive X-ray
Layered ternary Mn+1AXnphases and their 2D derivative MXene: An overview from a thin-film perspective
Inherently and artificially layered materials are commonly investigated both for fundamental scientific purposes and for technological application. When a layered material is thinned or delaminated
