With the boom in the development of micro-electronics for wearable and flexible electronics, there is a growing demand for micro-batteries and micro-supercapacitors (MSCs). Micro-supercapacitors have garnered a considerable attention for the evolution of these energy storage micro-systems. The choice of electrode material plays a pivotal role in the fabrication and development of MSCs. Recently, a new emerging family of two-dimensional transition metal (M) carbides or nitrides (X) cited as 2D MXene has emerged as a novel material. Due to its exceptionally high electronic conductivity ̴10,000 S cm−1, high charge storage capacity and easy processing capability helps to use MXene as the promising candidate for micro-supercapacitors electrodes. Taking the advantage of such exceptional properties. MXenes have been explored enormously in stacked as well as in interdigital architecture for on-chip micro-supercapacitors (MSCs). This book chapter includes a recent advancement of MXene based MSCs, with a brief overview of synthesis and fabrication techniques.
