Title: Rational control of the interlayer space inside two-dimensional titanium carbides for highly efficient uranium removal and imprisonment

Abstract

Rational control of the interlayer space of multilayered Ti 3C 2T xenables the MXene to exhibit an excellent U(vi) sorption capacity and an exceptional radionuclide encapsulation performance.
