Abstract [en]

M(n+1)AX(n) compounds have gathered huge momentum because of its exciting properties. In this paper we report the synthesis of ternary layered ceramic Cr2GeC, a 211 M(n+1)AX(n) compound by hot-pressing. Scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction have been employed to characterize the new synthesized phase. High-pressure compressibility of Cr2GeC were measured using diamond anvil cell and synchrotron C radiation at room temperature up to 48 GPa. No phase transformation was observed in the experimental pressure range. The bulk modulus of Cr2GeC calculated using the Birch-Murnaghan equation of state is 169 +/- 3 GPa, with K' = 3.05 +/- 0.15.
