The rapid advancement of electronic technology and wireless communication has led to an increased awareness of the covert nature of electromagnetic radiation as well as the potential damage it may do. This has a significant negative impact on the proper functioning of electrical equipment. As a result, it is of the utmost importance to develop brand-new electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding materials that have outstanding overall characteristics [1]. Due to their exceptional electrical conductivity, hydrophilicity, and chemical activity, two-dimensional layered transition metal carbides, nitride, or carbonitrides (also known as MXenes) have garnered a lot of attention in the field of EMI shielding in recent years. This chapter provides an introduction to the techniques of synthesis and the properties of Ti3C2Tx MXene, as well as a summary of the most current research and applications of Ti3C2Tx MXene in the properties of electromagnetic shielding and microwave absorption in the most recent years. The primary contribution that this chapter makes to the field of new knowledge is its emphasis on the electromagnetic properties of Ti3C2Tx MXenes as they are affected by the synthesis process, the structural design, and the introduction of a variety of materials in order to form different composites. In conclusion, new possibilities have been provided in order to overcome the existing hurdles and to develop the most cutting-edge EMI shielding and microwave absorption materials for future application that is objectively based.
