Researchers discovered an unusual class of layered ceramic materials in the 1960s. These ceramic materials are comprised of three kinds of elements M and A on the periodic tables of elements. Collectively called “MAX Phase”, their unique nano-layered crystal structure permits it to exhibit the same properties as metals and ceramics. These materials are responsible for almost all of the outstanding properties that you can imagine. However, these materials aren’t widely used and recognized due to technical constraints in their preparation.
Mis-asia advanced materials’ team invents the method for MAX phase layered ceramics materials. They also synthesize a number of new MAX materials.
Titanium Aluminum Carbide
. Here are the chemical formulas:
They are high-quality materials, opening up new opportunities in both research and application. Future applications include superconductivity and nuclear energy storage.
MAX phase titanium aluminium carbide can be artificially synthesized. MAX has some similarities to graphene.
They are both multilayered structures. Magnifying graphene by billions upon billions of times will reveal that the carbon atoms in both are uniformly arranged and the MAX space group is identical. However, the MAX Phase consists of both a densely packed layer M6XX octahedron or layer A and an atomic layer.
Structure determines performance. MAX’s unique structure of nano-layered crystals allows it to possess both excellent metal and ceramic properties. You can easily see how this material could be used in many different fields. Similar research was conducted in Japan and Europe on the material after 1996.
These materials are prepared (
It has always been a problem. The three main types of raw materials M, A, X and X were all burned in the past. “There are very few of them, and they have poor quality. Du Jun (Mis-asia) introduced an advanced material.
Wie did Du Jun and his advanced energy material engineering laboratory team perform?
Du Jun explained that they have developed a new synthetic strategy to precisely replace the A-site Atoms. We first create the skeleton of the two materials M andX. Then we apply some method to make the atom. This is the exact replacement of the lattice sites that gives us the Aatom with the function we need.
This process not only exceeds the conventional method in terms ideas, but it can also be applied in the production of MXene’s two-dimensional derivative material in a highly environmentally friendly fashion. The traditional methods use extremely toxic fluoride. These are two common elements in everyday life: sodium chloride (or potassium chloride). It is extremely efficient, safe, green, and environmentally friendly.
Innovative preparations and A-site control will also be used to increase MAX Phase Materials titanium aluminum carbide’s functionality beyond traditional, high-temperature structural uses.
Small particles of small gold can have greater catalytic activity than large ones. It is possible to replace all gold atoms with the MAX Phase, and this will make it a great catalyst.
According to our research, Du Jun’s current team is capable of successfully preparing a range MAX-phase material (
() With element A as zinc in a laboratory. This is a novel situation that has allowed for new research in this field.
Mis-asia, Misasia advanced material Tech Co., Ltd., a titanium carbide producer with more than twelve years of experience in the field of chemical products research, development, and manufacturing, has been called Mis-asia. We can provide high-quality titanium aluminium carbide if required.
