A comprehensive review on MXenes as new nanomaterials for degradation of hazardous pollutants: Deployment as heterogeneous sonocatalysis
MetadataShow full item record
MXene-based nanomaterials (MBNs) are two-dimensional materials that exhibit a series of sought after properties, including rich surface chemistry, adjustable bandgap structures, high electrical conductivity, hydrophobicity, thermal stability, and large specific surface area. MBNs have an exemplar performance when applied for the degradation of hazardous pollutants with various advanced oxidation processes such as heterogeneous sonocatalysis. As such, this work focuses on the sonocatalytic degradation of various hazardous pollutants using MXene-based catalysts. First, the general principles of sonocatalysis are examined, followed by an analysis of the main components of the MXene-based sonocatalysts and their application for pollutant degradation. Lastly, ongoing challenges are highlighted with recommendations to address the issues.
