Titanium carbide (Ti 3 C 2)-based MXenes are a potential class of materials for energy storage applications. MXenes are transition metal carbides, nitrides, or carbonitrides that are two-dimensional (2D) materials with special characteristics like high surface area, electrical conductivity, and exceptional mechanical flexibility. Ti 3 C 2-based MXenes have drawn the most interest among the different MXenes because of their superior electrochemical performance and stability in various electrolytes. This chapter summarizes current developments in the synthesis, characterization, and uses of Ti 3 C 2-based MXenes in energy storage systems such as batteries and supercapacitors. Discussion of the structure–property connections of Ti 3 C 2-based MXenes emphasizes on the impact of surface terminations and ion intercalation on these materials' electrochemical performance, cycling, and thermal stability. Along with potential avenues for additional research, the difficulties and possibilities for the development of Ti 3 C 2-based MXenes for energy storage applications in the future are also discussed.
