Presentation Summary

Safety still remains an important concern in lithium ion batteries. One of the usual issues is related to the gas evolution, frequently caused in the cells by abuse conditions: overcharge, over-discharge and elevated temperatures. The gas generation can induce over-pressure and swelling with subsequent reliability and safety problems for the devices. This presentation will describe main mechanisms leading to gas evolution and related effects; possible solutions to avoid the gas build-up in the cells will be also discussed.
