Titanium carbides are well-known for their outstanding mechanical and thermal stabilities. However, the studies on the mechanical properties and the conductivity of titanium carbide-carbon nanofibers (TiC/CNF) are missing. This work prepared TiC/CNF by electrospinning and highlighted the high modulus of single TiC/CNF, the flexibility and the excellent electrical conductivity of TiC/CNF felt even under 100 bending cycles. This flexible TiC/CNF felt with distinguished mechanical and electrical properties are promising to apply in titanium matrix composites (TMC), efficient catalyst scaffolds and electronic devices.
