Worth their salt: New battery anodes use salt for energy, stability

Read the full story from Argonne National Laboratory.

Rock salt can give a car a little extra traction on a snowy day, but it turns out that it might also be of benefit to fast charging batteries in electric cars as well.

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory and the University of California San Diego have discovered that a material that looks geometrically similar to rock salt could be an interesting candidate for lithium battery anodes that would be used in fast charging applications.
