This Symposium aims at being an international forum in which the different aspects of the MAX phases and other layered carbides and nitrides and their 2D derivative compounds, viz. the MXenes, are discussed. The MAX phases are layered hexagonal machinable ternary early transition metal carbides and nitrides. Currently the MAX phases number over 70, with new ones, especially 413’s and solid solutions still being discovered on a routine basis. The recent discovery of out of plane ordering, (o-MAX) and in-plane ordering (i-MAX) phases and their 2D derivative have greatly enriched and invigorated the field. The re-discovery of layered transition metal borides (MAB) phases that share some, but not all, similarities with the MAX phases is also a new and exciting.

The International Symposium “Progress in Nano-laminated Ternary Carbides, Nitrides and Borides (MAX/MAB) Phases and Derivatives Thereof (MXenes)” will focus on the latest advances in understanding the chemistry/processing/properties/microstructure relationships in the MAX/MAB and MXene phases. The proposed sessions will cover the gamut from density functional theory calculations to transport properties, to new phases, both predicted and synthesized, to ambient and high temperature mechanical properties, including creep and oxidation. How the MAX phases are converted to MXene and the properties of the latter will also be covered. Lastly, a session will be devoted to current and potential applications of these novel, exciting and unusual phases.
