Shine ion, crazy diamonds

Drexel researchers have reported that adding nanodiamonds to the electrolyte solution in lithium batteries can prevent the formation of dendrites, the tendril-like deposits of ions that can grow inside a battery over time and cause hazardous malfunctions.

Drexel University is using nanodiamond solutions to prevent dendrite formation, creating safer batteries Researchers at Drexel University in Philadelphia have developed a new electrolyte solution that can also safeguard against short circuiting in li-ion batteries. Although the key technology driving battery-powered transport (and other consumer goods), the process of charging …
