Researchers at Tohoku University employed lithium borohydride as a conductor in a solid-state battery, looking to prevent the fires that have happened with existing lithium-ion batteries. They doped potassium iodide with lithium borohydride to create a pure lithium-ion conductor, they report. "This parasitic conduction mechanism has a possibility to be applied in any lithium-ion conductors," said Hitoshi Takamura, an associate professor at the university.
