Study Finds a Way to Prevent Fires in Next-Generation Lithium Batteries

Menlo Park, Calif. — In a study that could improve the safety of next-generation batteries, researchers discovered that adding two chemicals to the electrolyte of a lithium metal battery prevents the formation of dendrites – “fingers” of lithium that pierce the barrier between the battery’s halves, causing it to short out, overheat and sometimes burst …
