Johns Hopkins APL Introduces Inflammable Lithium-ion Battery Tech

The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory has developed a Lithium-ion battery technology that works to function under extreme conditions, including being cut or burned.

Developed by a team led by APL senior research scientist Konstantinos Gerasopoulos, the technology integrates water-in-bisalt and water-in-salt electrolytes within a polymer matrix to optimize energy lifecycle as well as eliminate highly reactive solvents that can be found in today“™s batteries, APL said Monday.

In addition, scientists combined water-soluble acrylates to develop aqueous gel polymer electrolytes that can pass through liquid WiBS restrictions.

“Our team“™s efforts have generally been focused on replacing the flammable liquid with a polymer that improves safety and form factor,“ said Gerasopoulos.

APL scientists published their discovery in the Royal Society of Chemistry“™s Chemical Communications journal.
