MXenes possess excellent electrical conductivities, unique layered structure, large surface area, and good catalytic activities which make them appropriate for the fabrication of sensing platforms. This chapter discusses recent advances in the area of MXene based electrochemical (bio) sensors, piezoresistive sensors, gas sensors, and optical sensors. Each sensor has been discussed with suitable example in order to give a clear idea about the utility of these materials in sensing. These sensors are useful for the determination of a plethora of analytes, gases, and monitoring of the human subtle body movements.
