Abstract:

Many of the safety incidents that occur with lithium-ion batteries are due to the carbon anode currently in use. Incidents can occur that include overcharging in the system, which causes lithium metal to plate out of the cell and passivation at the surfaces of the electrodes in the cell, which can also cause an incident. Applied Colloids proposes the use of its proprietary nanomaterials in a "rocking chair" cell. This would eliminate the carbon anodes presently in use and improve the safety of both lithium-ion and lithium polymer batteries.
