The material comes from a two-dimensional family known as MXenes. These materials were first produced back in 2011 at Drexel University. Since then, researchers have discovered remarkable properties in many of these two-dimensional materials — and this new discovery could prove to be one of the most exciting yet.

The material is known as titanium carbonitride. While other MXenes have properties such as molecular filtration abilities, noteworthy strength, and high electrical conductivity, titanium carbonitride has a trait that’s a bit different. It has the ability to both block and absorb electromagnetic interference, and can do so far more effectively than any other known material.
