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!
- IYPT 2019 Elements 039: Yttrium: Camera lenses and white LEDs
- IYPT 2019 Elements 038: Strontium: Glow-in-the-dark paint and reducing tooth sensitivity
- IYPT 2019 Elements 037: Rubidium: GPS, solar cells, and locating tumours
- The environmental impact of industrial reactions – in C&EN
- IYPT 2019 Elements 036: Krypton: Lighting, the metre, and nuclear facilities
