Abstract

A new synthesis route for β-MgAl2C2 is presented. The synthesis of this carbide compound was based on a solid-state metathesis reaction. The material was prepared at 900 °C from aluminium powder, MgCl2 and Li2C2. The reaction product was inspected by X-ray powder diffraction and 13C NMR spectroscopy.
