In this month’s Periodic Graphics in C&EN, we’re looking at the chemistry behind the recent news stories of lithium-ion batteries in some devices catching fire. You can see the full graphic over on the C&EN site. Also, for more lithium battery chemistry, head over to the recent RealTimeChem Week graphic which looked at some ways in which scientists are trying to improve them!
- The chemistry of Venus flytraps – in C&EN
- How many women have won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry?
