Nanodiamonds Found to Prevent Lithium Battery Fires

Nanodiamonds Found to Prevent Lithium Battery Fires

LAKE WALES, Fla . — Scientists researching battery-related fires and explosions, such as the incidents that got Samsung Galaxy Note 7s banned from airline flights last year, took the first step toward preventing the fires when they traced the source of the runaway heat buildup to small dendrites that form between the anode and cathode. Now a materials specialist at Drexel University (Philadelphia) has proposed a low-cost, easy way to prevent the dendrites from forming: Just mix in nanodiamonds with the ordinary lithium-ion electrolyte at a concentration of at least 1 percent.
