Iodine may protect batteries

March 11, 2017

"Researchers at MIT and Carnegie Mellon University are studying a new kind of electrolyte for “self-healing” lithium battery cells, which will be formed by adding a halide element such as iodine, under a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Efficiency and Renewable Energy. The work could lead to longer driving range, lower cost electric vehicle batteries." - MIT News
