Researchers Create Pure Lithium Anode, 'Holy Grail' For Battery Cell

A lithium anode would be ideal, but it's also unstable--the lithium expands during charging, causing cracks and fissures in the anode, lithium ions escape, and battery life is reduced. Not only that, but a lithium anode chemically reacts with the electrolyte, further reducing its life. And the reaction also causes heat, potentially leading to fires.
