Introduction to titanium and aluminum carbide
Titanium-aluminum carbide is a new type of layered ceramic material with unique properties, which has been widely concerned by material scientists and physicists. Titanium carbide aluminum (Ti3AlC2) belongs to the hexagonal crystal system and has the characteristics of metal and ceramic: not only has the same conductivity and thermal conductivity as metal but also has high elastic modulus and suitable high-temperature mechanical properties similar to ceramic, has good conductivity and thermal conductivity, high elastic modulus and low Vickers hardness, good damage resistance; It can be cut at room temperature and plastic deformation can be produced at high temperature. It also has good high-temperature stability and oxidation resistance. At the same time, it also has good thermal vibration resistance, damage resistance, and excellent chemical corrosion resistance. MAX phase ceramics (including Ti3SiC2, Ti3AlC2, etc.) are a new type of machined conductive ceramic materials. Such ceramics contain more than sixty ternary carbides or nitrides. M represents the front metal element of the transition group; A represents the main group elements, mainly the elements of the third group and the fourth group; X stands for carbon or nitrogen. Ti3SiC2 is the most widely studied. Ti3SiC2 was successfully synthesized by Barsoum M's research group at Drexel University in 1996 by hot pressing method, and its excellent performance was found. Due to the unique nanolayered crystal structure, such ceramic materials have oxidation resistance, self-lubrication, high fracture toughness at room temperature, and conductive properties. This material can be widely used for high-temperature structural materials, electrode brush materials, chemical anticorrosive materials, and high-temperature heating bodies. The products are mainly used for high-temperature coatings, MXene precursors, conductive self-lubricating ceramics, lithium-ion batteries, supercapacitors, and electrochemical catalysis.
