We report a strong effect of the MXene flake size and surface termination on the dielectric permittivity of MXene polymer composites. Specifically, poly(vinylidene fluoride-trifluoro-ethylene-chlorofluoroehylene) or P(VDF-TrFE-CFE) polymer embedded with large (ca. 4.5 μm) Ti3C2Tx flakes achieves a dielectric permittivity as high as 105 near the percolation limit of 15.3 wt % MXene loading. In comparison, the dielectric permittivity of MXene/P(VDF-TrFE-CFE) using small (ca. 1.5 μm) Ti3C2Tx flakes (S-MXene) achieves a dielectric permittivity of 104 near the percolation limit of 16.8 wt %. Meanwhile, increasing the concentration of surface functional groups on the MXene surface (−O, −F, and −OH) by extending the etching time gives a dielectric constant of 2204 near the percolation limit of 15.7 wt %. The ratio of permittivity to the loss factor of our large flake composite is superior to that of the small flake composite, and to all previously reported carbon-based fillers in P(VDF-TrFE-CFE). We show that the dielectric permittivity enhancement is strongly related to the charge accumulation at the surfaces between the two dimensional (2D) MXene flakes and the polymer matrix under an external applied electric field.
