Over the past few years, transition metal carbides, nitrides, and carbonitrides, commonly referred to as MXenes have been discovered and utilized quickly in a range of technical fields due to their distinctive and controlled characteristics. MXenes are a new class of two-dimensional (2D) materials that have found extensive use in a variety of fields, including energy storage, catalysis, sensing, biology, and other scientific disciplines. This is because of their exceptional mechanical and structural characteristics, metal electrical conductivity, and other outstanding physical and chemical properties. In this contribution, we review recent cellulose research advances and show that MXene hybrids are effective composites that benefit from cellulose superior water dispersibility and the electrostatic attraction between cellulose and MXene to prevent MXene accumulation and improve the composite's mechanical properties. Electrical, materials, chemical, mechanical, environmental, and biomedical engineering are all fields in which cellulose/MXene composites are used. These properties and applications-based reviews on MXene/cellulose composite, critically analyze the results and accomplishments in these fields and provide context for potential future research initiatives. It examines newly reported applications for cellulose nanocomposites assisted by MXene. To support their development and future applications, perspectives and difficulties are suggested in the conclusion.
