MXenes have demonstrated high performance as negative electrodes in supercapacitors with aqueous electrolytes due to their high redox capacitance. However, oxidation limits their use under positive potential, requiring asymmetric devices with positive electrodes made of other materials which are usually less capacitive compared to MXenes and therefore limit the device performances. Here, we report the synthesis of two-dimensional molybdenum vanadium carbides (MoxV4−xC3), previously unexplored…
