Abstract

Despite having never been synthesized, the MAX phase Zr2AlC attracts a lot of interest owing to its foreseen properties. A possible way to circumvent this obstacle is to stabilize Zr2AlC by partially substituting one of its constituting elements. Here we report on attempts to synthesise quaternary MAX phases (Zr,M)2AlC and Zr2(Al,A)C where M = Cr, Ti or Mo and A = S, As, Sn, Sb and Pb. We were notably able to produce Zr2(Al0.2Sn0.8)C, Zr2(Al0.35Pb0.65)C, and Zr2(Al0.3Sb0.7)C, with the latter representing the first antimony-based MAX phase ever reported.
