Title: Electrochemical and in-situ X-ray diffraction studies of Ti 3C 2T x MXene in ionic liquid electrolyte

2D titanium carbide (Ti 3C 2T x MXene) showed good capacitance in both organic and neat ionic liquid electrolytes, but its charge storage mechanism is still not fully understood. Here, electrochemical characteristics of Ti 3C 2T x electrode were studied in neat EMI-TFSI electrolyte. A capacitive behavior was observed within a large electrochemical potential range (from – 1.5 to 1.5 V vs. Ag). Intercalation and de-intercalation of EMI + cations and/or TFSI– anions were investigated by in-situ X-ray diffraction. Interlayer spacing of Ti 3C 2T x flakes decreases during positive polarization, which can be ascribed to either electrostatic attraction effect between intercalated TFSI– anions and positively charged Ti 3C 2T x nanosheets or steric effect caused by de-intercalation of EMI + cations. In conclusion, the expansion of interlayer spacing when polarized to negative potentials is explained by steric effect of cation intercalation.
