Lithium-ion Batteries: 2021 Starts with a Bang (or Two)

Lithium-ion batteries are everywhere and gigafactories to make them are being announced all the time. When they catch fire, it is the electrolytes that burn so there is work to introduce non-flammable electrolytes such as certain organic liquids and solid state inorganics.

Safer, Less Expensive and Fast Charging Aqueous Battery

Safer, Less Expensive and Fast Charging Aqueous Battery

Zinc-based aqueous batteries avoid the fire hazard by using a water-based electrolyte instead of the conventional chemical solvent. However, uncontrolled dendrite growth limits their ability to provide the high performance and long life needed for practical applications.
