    A polymer that could reduce supercapacitor fire risk

    Scientists in China have developed a temperature-responsive polymer for use in supercapacitors to prevent them from overheating. Supercapacitors have high power densities that mean they are prone to self-propagating, uncontrolled temperature increases – an effect known as thermal runaway. T ... more
