Clemson researchers have developed a polymer electrolyte for lithium-ion batteries with temperature responsive properties that can be used to inhibit thermal hazards associated with large-format and high-power lithium-ion batteries. This is achieved by a phase transition that is based on the separation of a polymer from the electrolyte solution.
