Title

Dye Adsorption and Decomposition on Two-Dimensional Titanium Carbide in Aqueous Media

Abstract

Recently a large family of two-dimensional (2D) layered early transition metal carbides and carbonitrides-labelled MXene-possessing metallic conductivity and hydrophilic surfaces was discovered. Herein we report on the adsorption and photocatalytic decomposition of organic molecules in aqueous environments containing Ti3C2Tx, a representative of the MXene family. This material possesses excellent adsorption toward cationic dyes, best described by a Freundlich isotherm. We also found that the material may undergo structural changes in aqueous media.
