Role of Porous MXenes: Foams and Aerogels in EMI Shielding

Sayan Ganguly

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter discusses the synthesis and electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding applications of MXenes-based aerogels. MXenes are two dimensional (2D) nanomaterials that have electrical and thermal conductivities. As EMI shielding materials demand for electro-conductive mesh-like or reticulated microstructures, the aerogels have an immense role in this context. Aerogels or foams are 3D network-type monoliths that could hold/retain emptiness in their internal microstructure, which could be terminologically demonstrated as ‘voids’. MXene aerogels/foams have similar kinds of porous monoliths that are electrically conducting along with light weight compared to traditional polymeric films of composites. How the porous structure of MXenes assemblies facilitates for mitigating incident electromagnetic waves is also discussed with their reported plausible mechanistic pathways.
