Keeping a Close Eye on Lithium Ions

By Katherine Bourzac for C&EN

After a year or so, lithium-ion batteries—used in cell phones, laptops, and electric cars—need more frequent recharging. And on rare occasions, the batteries can fail catastrophically. A new way to directly image lithium ions could help researchers better understand why these problems happen, helping them to improve battery design. Li-ion batteries can catch fire when […]

What’s the Most Important Unsolved Problem in Chemistry?

By Jesse Stanchak

What’s the most important unsolved problem in chemistry? It’s a deceptively simple question. You could ask 100 different chemists and get 100 different answers. Chemistry is the central science, with ties to every other scientific discipline. It’s only natural that someone studying physical chemistry would have a very different selection for the most important unsolved […]
