Recently, two-dimensional MXenes and MXene-based nanomaterials have attracted increasing interest because of their unique properties (e. g., remarkable safety, a very large interlayer spacing, environmental flexibility, a large surface area, and thermal conductivity). We present a comprehensive review of recent studies on energy and environmental applications of MXene and MXene-based nanomaterials, including energy conversion and storage, adsorption, membrane, photocatalysis, and antimicrobial.

A simple, low cost, and easy to use nanosensor, based on the switchable peroxidase-mimicking activity of plasmonic AuNPs was developed for the detection of protease, an enzyme biomarker indicative of bacterial contamination or clinical infection. AuNPs were modified with casein which had dual function in the suppression of peroxidase-mimicking activity and also as recognition sites for protease, resulting in the degradation of casein and subsequent recovery of peroxidase-mimicking activity.

Decorative visibly-opaque but near-infrared (NIR)-transmitting filters that possess high-efficiency and angular-insensitivity are demonstrated employing one-dimensional ternary photonic crystals. Different reflective colors can be generated without affecting the NIR transmission performance, thus opening up new possibilities for a wide variety of applications such as image sensors, optical detections, and NIR decorations.
