  1. While MAX phases offer an exotic combination of ceramic and metallic properties, rendering them a unique class of materials, their applications remain virtually hypothetical. To overcome this shortcoming, a sol–gel based route is introduced that allows access to microwires in the range of tens of micrometers. Thorough structural characterization through XRD, SEM, EDS, and AFM demonstrates a successful synthesis of carbonaceous Cr 2 GaC wires, and advanced low temperature electronic transport measurements revealed resistivity behavior dominated by amorphous carbon. The tunability of electronic behavior of the obtained microwires is shown by a halide post-synthesis treatment, allowing purposeful engineering of the microwires’ electrical conductivity. Raman studies revealed the polyanionic nature of the intercalated halides and a slow decrease in halide concentration was concluded from time-dependent conductivity measurements. Based on these findings, the process is considered a viable candidate for fabricating chemiresistive halogen gas sensors.
