A recent paper by Hu et al. claimed synthesis of the MAX-phase Ti3SiC2at 100-300 °C using pulsed laser deposition. In this comment, we find that the evidence presented by Hu et al. is insufficient to show Ti3SiC2 formation. In fact, there is a simpler interpretation of their results from X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy, namely that the material produced is a cubic TiC-based compound.
