A University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill research team, led by chemist Joseph DeSimone, may have found a solution for the battery problem vexing a couple of the most progressive transportation developments of the last several years.
Both Tesla, the builder of cutting edge electric cars, and Boeing, the maker of the 787 Dreamliner airliner, have faced ongoing challenges with the flammability of the lithium batteries that they use.
In a paper published in the February edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences DeSimone identifies a non-combustible electrolyte that was being studied as a way to prevent grown of marine life on the bottom of ships as a possible replacement for the electrolyte used in lithium batteries that can spontaneously combust at high temperatures.
