Cover Story (view full-size image): MXenes, a large group of two-dimensional transition metal carbides and nitrides, possess hydrophilic surfaces, high electrical conductivity, and outstanding mechanical properties. Titanium carbide (Ti3C2Tx) MXene with metallic conductivity can be used to coat insulating glass fibers, providing a uniform coating made of flakes with nanometer thickness and lateral dimensions of a few micrometers. Plasma treatment of the glass fibers facilitates the adhesion of MXene flakes, and the fibers become conductive after coating. MXene-coated glass fibers can be used in the development of damage-sensing polymer–matrix composites with a strong fiber–matrix interface. View this paper
