Titanium Aluminum Nitride (Ti2AlN) belongs to the family of Mn+1AXn (MAX) phases with more than 80 members. These are layered, machinable, nanolaminated ternary carbides, nitrides and borides, where M is an early transition metal, A is an A-group element, mainly from groups 13–16 and X is C or N or B. These compounds possess hexagonal crystal structure with space group P63/mmc (space group number: 194), where M atoms are in a near closed packed arrangement and are intercalated with A-group atomic layers, with the X-atoms residing in the octahedral sites between the M layers. These atomic arrangements give the MAX phases an effective laminated layered structure that leads to the naming of the MAX phase as nanolaminates. MAX phases possess a unique combination of properties, both metallic and ceramic in nature due to the layered structure. Metallic properties include good thermal and electrical conductivities, good thermal shock resistance, excellent damage tolerance, and good machinability. Ceramic properties include low density, elastic rigidity, oxidation and creep resistance, and the ability to maintain the strength up to high temperatures.

Titanium Aluminum Nitride (Ti2AlN) MAX phase is a high-quality micron-powder with remarkable properties. It has low density, high elastic modulus, grood machinability, excellent thermal shock resistance and high strength and electrical conductivity. Additionally, it is an ideal MXene precursor that can be processed by HF or HCl+LiF to obtain MXene. It is suitable for a variety of applications such as energy storage, catalysis, analytical chemistry and more.
