The increasing interest toward wearable and portable electronic devices calls for multifunctional materials and fibers/yarns capable of seamless integration with everyday textiles. To date, one particular gap inhibiting the development of such devices is the production of robust functional fibers with improved electronic conductivity and electrochemical energy storage capability. Recent efforts have been made to produce functional fibers with 2D carbides known as MXenes to address these demands. Ti3C2Tx MXene, in particular, is known for its metallic conductivity and high volumetric capacitance, and has shown promise for fibers and textile-based devices when used either as an additive, coating or the main fiber component. In this spotlight article, we highlight the recent exciting developments in our diverse efforts to fabricate MXene functionalized fibers, along with a critical evaluation of the challenges in processing, which directly affect macroscale material properties and the performance of the subsequent prototype devices. We also provide our assessment of observed and foreseen challenges of the current manufacturing methods and the opportunities arising from recent advances in the development of MXene fibers and paving future avenues for textile design and practical use in advanced applications.
