Scientists at Drexel University’s College of Engineering developed clay that is highly conductive and can be rolled and molded into a variety of shapes and sizes. Called conductive MXene clay, the material could be to transform next-generation batteries and supercapacitors.
Early testing on the MXene clay has shown that it can be rolled flat and allowed to dry, leaving behind a conductive membrane that features similar conductivity as solid metals. The team is testing the clay to see if it can be watered down to make a conductive paint that could be used for solar and battery applications.
