Mxene, a novel group of two-dimensional transition metal carbides, carbonitrides and nitrides was introduced by researchers at Drexel University in 2011. Since their discovery, Mxene attracted much attention from many researchers in different fields due to their unique properties such as having high surface area, unique metallic conductivity, high reactivity, high adsorption ability, and composition tunability. Yury Gogotsi can be named as one of the prominent researchers in this field. Today, the number of articles about different applications of Mxene in various fields such as energy storage, biomedical imaging, biomedical therapy, bio-sensors, separation sciences, environmental protection, optoelectronics, etc. is growing at a remarkable speed. The number of articles published on Mxene in 2020 exceeded 3000.
To comprehend the structures of Mxene computational simulations are frequently employed to support experimental discoveries. These researches have revealed that Mxene may be found in six different structures. Recently developments in Mxene are related to their assemblies from two-dimensional structures to three-dimensional. In this article, we discuss Mxene design and applicable software.
Software for Mxene design and Illustration
Professional Mxene structures design and illustration in related research papers can significantly improve the quality and clarity of the papers. Our experienced group can help researchers in this field with professional illustrations of Mxene structures.
There are three types of illustration techniques for showing Mxene structures:
1) Designing by 2D software
If you want to create stunning 2D illustrations of Mxene structures, you should try some software like Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. These programs allow you to produce vector-based graphics that have high-quality and sharp colors. You can use them to make graphical abstracts or article figures that showcase your scientific work, or even to design journal covers that catch the eye of the readers. Mxene structures are versatile and beautiful, and you can express your creativity with these software tools.
