New ‘smart’ fibers curb fires in lithium-ion batteries

Wochit Headline News - Friday, 13 January 2017
Scientists have developed a new method to put out lithium-ion batteries before it sparks. Researchers at Stanford University created a tiny sheet of fibers containing a flame retardant that can be inserted between a battery's electrodes. If the temperature in the battery becomes too high, the flame retardant can be released, preventing ignition.
