Powering a solution: Professor takes charge at improving lithium ion batteries safety

Dr. Yu Zhu and his team of graduate students in The University of Akron's College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering are working to improve the safety of Li-ion batteries by creating a shear-thickening electrolyte -- a substance that can become thicker under impact, set between the battery's anode and cathode that will be impact-resistant, thus not causing a fire or an explosion upon any collision.
