The emergence of two-dimensional (2D) materials in the energy conversion field renders Ti 3 C 2 T x MXenes as a promising metallic cocatalyst owing to their unique morphological structure, tunable termination groups, excellent electrical conductivity, and the Schottky barrier provision. The attractive photocatalytic features endowed by Ti 3 C 2 T x MXene prevailed them as one of the most influential co-catalyst to substitute expensive noble metals. Herein, the fundamentals, properties, and photocatalytic attributes of widely utilized titanium carbide MXenes (Ti 3 C 2 T x) have been reviewed. First, the structural overview and the fundamentals of the metallic-semiconductor provision are briefly discussed. In the next section, the photocatalytic properties of Ti 3 C 2 T x MXenes with the view of their opto-electronic and electrical properties are deeply focused. Next, the photocatalytic attributes of Ti 3 C 2 T x MXenes are comprehensively discussed. The insights into the Ti 3 C 2 T x MXene functionalization with the views of photocatalytic performances are elucidated. Besides, the intrinsic 2D structure of Ti 3 C 2 T x MXenes with their contribution to the construction of multidimensional Ti 3 C 2 T x MXene-based catalysts are profoundly scrutinized. Finally, the views on the future progress in Ti 3 C 2 T x MXene have been proffered to further explore Ti 3 C 2 T x MXenes in future studies.
