The atomically thick two-dimensional (2D) materials are at the forefront of revolutionary technologies for energy storage devices. Due to their fascinating physical and chemical features, these materials have gotten a lot of attention. They are particularly appealing for a wide range of applications, including electrochemical storage systems, due to their simplicity of property tuning. The MXene is a type of 2D material that is widely recognized for its exceptional electrochemical characteristics. The use of these materials in conjunction with conducting polymers, notably polypyrrole (PPy), has opened new possibilities for lightweight, flexible, and portable electrodes. Therefore, herein we report a comprehensive review of recent achievements in the production of MXene/PPy nanocomposites. The structural− property relationship of this class of nanocomposites was taken into consideration with an elaborate discussion of the various characterizations employed. As a result, this research gives a narrative explanation of how PPy interacts with distinct MXenes to produce desirable high-performance nanocomposites. The effects of MXene incorporation on the thermal, electrical, and electrochemical characteristics of the resultant nanocomposites were discussed. Finally, it is critically reviewed and presented as an advanced composite material in electrochemical storage devices, energy conversion, electrochemical sensors, and electromagnetic interference shielding.
