Abstract

IntroductionThe study of MAX phases has become an important sub‐branch in materials science and technology due to their interesting properties and various studies since their discovery during 1960s. The structure consists of the stacking of n “ceramic” layer(s) inserted by an A “metallic” layer. A good number of MAX phase compounds have then been synthesized and the physical properties investigated. For example, the M2AX phases with M = (Ti, V, Cr, Nb, Ta, Zr, Hf); A = (Al, S, Sn, As, In, Ga), and X = (N, C) have been studied both experimentally and theoretically because of their attractive properties as stated earlier. Due to the continuing efforts by the scientific community existence of further MAX phases has been reported or proposed. As a result, the number of synthesized ternary MAX phases has reached over 70 out of a possible 665 viable MAX phases (Mn+1AXn, n = 1–4). Moreover, very recently the MAX phase materials are used as a precursor to synthesize atomically thin two dimensional materials with many attractive physical features, the so called MXenes. So it is evident that there are still many MAX phases including Sc2InC which till now have not been synthesized. But it should be mentioned that one of the previous studies
