Title: Electrochemical performance of MXenes as K-ion battery anodes

Abstract

In this paper, we report on the electrochemical performance of two-dimensional transition metal carbonitrides as novel promising electrode materials in K-ion batteries. Titanium carbonitride, Ti3CNTz, was investigated in detail using electrochemical galvanostatic cycling at various current densities. Finally, X-ray diffraction and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy were used to study the potassiation mechanism and its structural changes.
