New Electrolyte Developed by Stanford Team Could Lead to Breakthrough in Commercialization of Lithium-Metal Batteries

published: 2020-07-02 18:30 | editor | category: News
Electrolyte, which plays the crucial role of transporting ions between the cathode and the anode of a battery, has been both the strength and the weakness of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. Currently, the carbonate electrolyte that is inside conventional Li-ion batteries has a decent level of conductivity and is low in cost. However, its high flammability poses a serious safety risk. ...  more

Single-use batteries (or primary cells) continue to be the mainstream battery technology that powers a wide range of electronic devices and household appliances such as TV remotes, portable radios, and kids’ toys. However, their convenience often results in them being discarded carelessly and thereby causing harms to the environment. ...  more

Installing “Spillway” for Lithium-ion Batteries to Effectively Prevent Uncontrollable Chain Reactions

published: 2020-04-11 18:30 | editor | category: News
In the midst of pondering on how to enhance the safety of lithium-ion batteries, and reduce the possibility of explosion caused by battery overheating, a large number of scientists must first resolve the challenging issue of “dendrites” that are formed during charge and discharge of batteries, for which University of California, San Diego (UCSD), has effectively prevented uncontrollable reactions through the concept of “spillway”. ...  more
