Carbon-Ukraine - Equipment Manufacturing

  • MAX-phases and MXene synthesis for research purposes

    Dear researchers, 

    We are very glad to inform you that our laboratory in Kyiv is active and continues working on the synthesis of MAX phases and MXenes, now we synthesize the materials for all the orders and also have already some materials in stock. In spite on the hard situation in Ukraine we have verified  logistics and now successfully deliver international orders worldwide. 

    We supply  Ti3AlC2, Ti2AlC, V2AlC, Nb2AlC MAX-phase materials and MXenes and also customized laboratory etching reactors fro  MXene synthesis and others related to MAX phase and MXene processing.  Please send all your enquiries and contact us for your orders by e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots.

    Due to many years of successful cooperation Carbon-Ukraine is the official MXene licensed partner of Drexel University, USA, the initial inventor of these materials, allowing us manufacture MXenes and MXene products in different forms (for various applications) for research and educational purposes and supply them worldwide. 

    Carbon-Ukraine provides synthesis of MXenes V2C, Ti2C and Ti3C2 (delaminated, multilayered), MXenes in aqueous media and different solvents, specific surface functionalisation and customizable flake size.

    MAX phases Ti3AlC2, Ti2AlC, V2AlC, Nb2AlC, Mo3AlC2,  others are also possible on specific customized orders.

    Carbon-Ukraine is engaged in experimental synthesis and customized manufacturing of  various materials for scientific research needs. We synthesized MAX-phase and MXene materials for more than 300 universities, research laboratories and  companies from different countries within joint R&D projects and customized orders. 

    Also we are open for cooperarion with academy and industrial partners, and will be glad to take part in international research and development projects.We have many successfully completed Horizon 2020 European projects, US DoE projects and are open for all r&d collaborations.



    Our MAX-phase materials have specific composition intended for obtaining MXene. Available particle size:  ≤ 200, ≤100, ≤ 40 microns or bulk material. MAX-phases solid samples or targets are also available. 


    MXene materials can be produced and supplied in the following forms:

    • MXene paste (V2C ,Ti3Caqueous solutions or in organic solvents), delaminated, multilayered
    • Powder with a particle size distribution range from hundreds of nm up to tens of µm
    • Thin film deposited on a substrate
    • Freestanding film (3-100 microns)
    • Colloidal solution of delaminated single-layer MXene sheets 
    • Freestanding cold-pressed discs
