Titanium aluminum carbide is a new kind of ternary layered ceramic material with unique properties. Titanium aluminum carbide (Ti3AlC2) belongs to the hexagonal crystal system, and has the characteristics of both metal and ceramic: it has the same electrical and thermal conductivity as metal, high elastic modulus similar to ceramic and excellent high temperature mechanical properties, as well as good thermal vibration resistance, damage resistance and excellent chemical corrosion resistance. MAX phase ceramics (including Ti3SiC2, Ti3AlC2, etc.) is a new type of conductive ceramic material which has attracted much attention. These ceramics contain more than sixty ternary carbides or nitrides. M stands for metal elements in the front of the transition group; A represents the main group elements, mainly the elements of the third and fourth groups; X is for carbon or nitrogen. Ti3SiC2 is the most widely studied. Ti3SiC2 was successfully synthesized by hot pressing method in 1996 by professor Barsoum M of Drexel university in the United States, and its excellent performance was discovered. Due to the unique nano-layered crystal structure, this kind of ceramic material has the properties of anti-oxidation, self-lubrication, high fracture toughness at room temperature and conductive. Such materials can be widely used as high-temperature structural materials, electrode and brush materials, chemical anti-corrosion materials and high-temperature heating materials. The products are mainly used for high-temperature coating, MXene precursor, conductive self-lubricating ceramics, lithium ion batteries, supercapacitors, electrochemical catalysis
