Energy shortages and environmental pollution have become big issues due to the overuse of fossil energy that has aroused worldwide concern. The introduction of new materials with layered structures, cheap materials, and large surface areas is a possible approach to subdue the issues for sustainable development. In this point of view, layered double hydroxides (LDHs) and titanium carbide (Ti 3 C 2) MXenes are astonishing nanomaterials due to their 2D morphology and superb properties for energy and environmental application. These materials exhibit the benefits of high surface area and excellent catalytic properties. The primary aim of this chapter is to explore the latest progress in Ti 3 C 2-based LDH nanocomposites for energy storage, conversion, and photodegradation purposes. Thus, several approaches and advancements are considered by reviewing the conventional techniques for the formation of pure and nanocomposite materials. Lastly, the challenges and a perspective toward the potential study of TiC MXene-based LDH composite material have been concluded.
