Dr. Vadym Mochalin, an associate professor of chemistry and materials science and engineering, and Dr. Shuohan Huang, a doctoral graduate in chemistry, recently published a paper titled “Combination of High pH and an Antioxidant Improves Chemical Stability of Two-Dimensional Transition-Metal Carbides and Carbonitrides (#MXenes) in Aqueous Colloidal Solutions”.

The American Chemical Society journal, Inorganic Chemistry, published the article that builds upon their pioneering work on reactivity of 2D transition metal carbides/nitrides (MXenes). The research proposes an efficient synergistic way to suppress hydrolysis and oxidation of MXenes, two main routes of their degradation in aqueous environments, thus increasing shelf-life of these materials and improving their performance in many applications.

This paper also has received unsolicited coverage at, a sci-tech news outlet.
