Nano-Diamonds Help Prevent Lithium Battery Fires

Last year, airline flights banned Samsung Galaxy Note 7s because of its battery-related fires and explosions. Scientists researching the source of the runway beat buildup found the culprit to be small dendrites forming between the anode and cathode of the battery. A materials specialist from the Drexel University at Philadelphia has proposed a low-cost easy solution to preclude dendrite formation. According to Drexel professor Yury Gogotsi, this simply requires mixing nanodiamonds with the regular Read more [...]
