    MXenes offer single step processing, excellent electrical conductivity, easy heat dissipation behavior, and capacitor-like properties and are used in photodetectors, lithium-ion batteries, solar cells, photocatalysis, electrochemiluminescence sensors, and supercapacitors. Because of their superior electrical and thermal conductivities, these composites are an ideal choice in electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding. MXene Nanocomposites: Design, Fabrication, and Shielding Applications presents a comprehensive overview of these emerging materials, including their underlying chemistry, fabrication strategies, and cutting-edge applications in EMI shielding.

    • Covers modern fabrication technologies, processing, properties, nanostructure formation, and mechanisms of reinforcement
    • Discuss biocompatibility, suitability, and toxic effects
    • Details innovations, applications, opportunities, and future directions in EMI shielding applications

    This book is aimed at researchers and advanced students in materials science and engineering and is unique in its detailed coverage of MXene-based polymer composites for EMI shielding.

    1. Introduction and Background of MXenes. 2. Synthesis and Processing Strategies of MXenes. 3. Surface Functionalization and Interfacial Design of MXenes. 4. Solid-Solution MXenes and Their Properties. 5. Composites of MXenes. 6. Electrical Conductivity of MXenes-Based Polymer Composites. 7. Electromagnetic Interference Shielding Behavior of MXenes: Theoretical and Experimental Perspectives. 8. Role of Porous MXenes: Foams and Aerogels in EMI Shielding. 9. Role of MXene-Based Conductive Polymer Composites in EMI Shielding. 10. MXene-Polymer Nanocomposites for Biomedical Applications. 11. Role of MXene/Conductive Rubber Composites in EMI Shielding. 12. Advancement in Nanostructured Carbide/Nitrides MXenes with Different Architecture for Electromagnetic Interference Shielding Application.
